The Department of Art and Art History at the University at Albany is accepting applications for its Fall 2021 MFA and MA programs in Studio Art. All students in the highly competitive 2-year MFA program are offered Teaching or Graduate Assistantship funding and 50% tuition waivers.
Regular studio visits with faculty, peers, and visiting artists are designed to give students a range of contexts and viewpoints within which to consider their work. The objective of the program is to both broaden and deepen students’ understanding of contemporary art to better develop their studio preoccupations. Contemporary art seminars complement studio classes and equip students with insights that allow them to operate with increasing criticality and self-awareness.
In this affordable, interdisciplinary program, students work across Painting and Drawing, Printmaking, Sculpture and Installation, and Photography and Related Media, and are given 24-hour access to spacious, private, and semi-private studios and well-equipped common work
