International Center of Photography School
Conveniently located in vibrant New York City, the ICP School is the country’s preeminent photographic educational institution. The ICP-Bard MFA Program offers a rigorous exploration of all aspects of photography and studio practice, critical study, and Resident Artist Projects.

The ICP-Bard MFA program offers an exploration into the ways in which the photograph operates in society. The 60 credits required for the master of fine arts degree cover the production of a final solo exhibition of original artwork, participation in a final group exhibition, a cumulative publication, as well as the completion of class assignments and internships. The ICP-Bard approach emphasizes creative vision and openness to examining the many iterations of the image, from photography to digital imaging, installation, and video. By considering how photographs are created, presented, discussed, used, and documented, students gain an intimate knowledge of the ways in which images increasingly structure modern society and consciousness.

The graduate seminars blend in-depth study, intensive discussions, and individual work. Students also gain an understanding of the role of art historians by working with ICP’s curatorial team and the ICP Museum’s extensive archives. Students learn how exhibitions are curated, archives are maintained, and research is conducted. In the Resident Artist projects and internships, students learn firsthand from contemporary artists about the practical conditions of making art and innovative approaches to photographic practice. With its strong emphasis on writing and publication, the program encourages students to articulate the relationship between their practice and that of other artists.

Throughout the program, students receive individualized attention and support from a distinguished and dedicated core faculty, as well as noted visiting artists, and mentors with whom students intern. Visiting faculty includes practicing artists, scholars, critics, historians and varies from year to year.
