The Visual Arts Program at Columbia University School of the Arts attracts emerging artists of unusual promise from around the world. They join a vigorous community, working alongside an exceptional faculty at a world-renowned research institution in the global center that is New York City.

Contemporary art has become increasingly interdisciplinary. To that end, the Visual Arts Program offers an MFA degree in Visual Arts rather than in one specific medium. The two-year studio program, taught by internationally celebrated artists, allows students to pursue digital media, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation, performance and video art.
