University of Delaware

The UD MFA program consists of twenty students who work together in an intimate environment with faculty and visiting artists representing a broad range of intellectual and artistic concerns. Tuition is free, and MFA students have excellent on-campus studios and 365 day/24-hour access to state-of-the-art facilities. The University’s centralized location on the eastern corridor of the United States makes it an ideal location to study visual art. Situated midway between Philadelphia and Baltimore, the campus is about two hours by train/car north to New York City, or south to Washington, D.C. Our program maintains a thoughtful, ambitious level of discussion about what constitutes powerful artistic practice, and the graduate faculty sees it as necessary and even critical to engage the artistic process as a trans-disciplinary method of inquiry and experimentation. The two-year MFA curriculum consists of three distinct yet interrelated parts: research, practice, and discourse. Students are expected to maintain an intensive studio practice that challenges and extends their investigations and to participate actively in critique, encouraging the open exchange of ideas in a collaborative environment.
