The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston’s (SMFA), Post-Baccalaureate program is an intensive year of studio art study and practice for recent college grads, mid-career professionals coming from another focus or practicing artists wishing to expand their ongoing studio work. This one-year certificate program provides excellent preparation for graduate-degree studies in the arts field or independent practice as a working artist.

SMFA shares its campus with the internationally renowned Museum of Fine Arts, Boston—one of only three schools nationally that are partnered with a major museum. Our students have unsurpassed access to an encyclopedic collection of art and the Museum’s curatorial, conservation and history departments.

Post-Bac students design their own path of study with close mentoring from faculty and are encouraged to explore across media. All Post-Bacs receive private studios and weekly studio visits by SMFA faculty—who are all practicing artists—offer students the chance to obtain critiques and advice on a personalized level. Weekly seminars covering important contemporary topics, field trips and dialogue with museum curators, collectors, gallerists, critics and visiting artists, foster professional networking opportunities. 

Much more than a rigorous studio experience, SMFA’s Post-Bac program encourages engagement with the thriving art scene of Boston, and beyond. Our Post-Bac graduates leave with a critical awareness of contemporary art and practice and a clarified understanding of their educational and professional goals.

Post-Bac students are eligible for the SMFA Merit Scholarship. We are now accepting applications for the fall 2013 term. Apply online or contact us at 800 643 6078 or [email protected] for more information.

This education values cultural, artistic and intellectual diversity; it embraces a wide range of media; it stresses the development of individual vision and its relation to culture in general; it values equally the knowledge gained by thinking and doing; it is deeply engaged with the world as a whole. If the mission is constant, its practice is always transforming. For more information about our programs and partnerships, visit
