Foreign Exchange Program Applications for MFA & BFA Due April 11th @ 5pm

Fall 2014/Spring 2015 MFA/BFA Application Deadline April 11th @ 5pm

Priority: Informational



To apply for the Fall 2014 or Spring 2015 academic year, eligible students are invited to submit their application to the Department of and Art History. 


The application should include:

1.    A brief reason for the selection of the particular school chosen.

2.    Ten slides and a slide list must be attached for review at Hunter and the Exchange Partners.

3.    Two recommendations from Hunter's Art Faculty are required and students should discuss the relevance of foreign study with their current professor and the department advisors. Faculty members familiar with your work should read your proposals to provide helpful insights to the Exchange Committee.

4.    If you have chosen a school that does not have English as the primary language indicate if you have proficiency in the language or how you plan to gain proficiency before traveling.*



*If you wish to go to Paris or Berlin and you are not fluent in French or German, you may want to take an intensive language course to achieve a basic level of proficiency in speaking the language.

All selections are subject to final approval by the European schools - this determines our 1:1 policy. Due to different academic years in European schools, the Art Office may not inform applicants until late summer for Fall applications. Once names have been submitted to the Hunter registrar's office all decisions are irreversible.
