The limited residency MFA in Photography at the Hartford Art School, University of Hartford is an innovative program designed for both mature individuals with established experience in the field as well as recent graduates who wish to further their own practice and acquire an MFA degree in order to facilitate their professional credentials as artists and educators. It differentiates itself from existing programs in that the new program is an international low-residency program and is the only low-residency MFA in the United States focusing solely on photography. More information can be found here.
