The Global Art World is Part of Our Daily Life
The MFA Program in studio art is a three-year program offering a wide range of opportunities for artists to develop their practice. The program provides studio space and workshops, and an environment that encourages experimentation, production, and critical dialogue. MFA students work closely with Hunter’s studio art faculty both one-on-one and in seminars focused on their art work and issues in contemporary practice. Classes in Art History, Curatorial Studies, and Theory and Criticism are offered at Hunter's Upper East Side campus, and MFA students take courses alongside their counterparts in Hunter's growing MA program. In addition, the MFA Program hosts a vibrant schedule of visiting artists, curators, critics, and historians at 205 Hudson for talks and studio visits.
The community of students represents a wide range of art interests, nationalities, ages and backgrounds.
