The Department of Art offers a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program that focuses on the creative goals of the individual. Our aim is to guide each student to finding and developing a particular direction and language as demonstrated by a coherent and conceptually unified body of artwork. Through an intense studio-based practice, our graduates develop into professional artists and college level educators who will successfully contribute to the culture on a local, national and global scale through different fields in the visual arts.
