provocative, and innovative work.
SFAI offers internationally regarded MFA programs in Design and Technology, Film, New Genres, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, and Sculpture. Reflecting a legacy of studio-based practice, these conceptual fine art programs encourage an experimental spirit, creative risk-taking, and interdisciplinary curiosity. Led by SFAI’s distinguished faculty, students are challenged to consider the contemporary, historical, and theoretical contexts of art as they develop a sustaining and vital creative practice.
SFAI’s MA programs in History and Theory of Contemporary Art, Exhibition and Museum Studies, and Urban Studies focus on advanced scholarly inquiry into the major ideas, institutions, and discourses of contemporary art, and the social and political conditions of its production.
The Dual Degree MA/MFA program is designed for students who want to synthesize the intellectual and artistic facets of their creative work, and cultivate a large portfolio of tools as cultural producers.
The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program is ideally suited for students who want to strengthen their work in an intensive environment of studio practice and critical engagement, in preparation for application to an MFA program.
