About the MFA Program
The MFA Program at the USC Roski School of Fine Arts is a two-year, full-time, studio-based program located in the center of Los Angeles. The program accepts eight students each fall, providing a highly rigorous and individualized experience. Its interdisciplinary nature encourages wide-ranging experimental and intellectual exploration. Students work closely with an internationally recognized faculty including Jud Fine, Sharon Lockhart, Frances Stark, and Charlie White, as well as visiting faculty members including Paul Sietsema and A.L. Steiner. MFA students also work with an expanded community of professional artists, critics, and curators from Los Angeles and beyond.

About the M.A. Art and Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere Program
The M.A. Art and Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere program is an intensive Master’s-level course in the practice and history of art, curating and critical theory. With a focus on the research and exhibition of contemporary art, instructors with international careers lead students in asking social questions about the exhibition of art and its publics. Over two years of full-time academic study, students explore new modes of production in a curriculum combining seminars and professional training. The M.A. faculty includes Rhea Anastas, Connie Butler, Carol Stakenas, Rochelle Steiner, and Noura Wedell. Among the M.A. course highlights is the Curatorial Practicum, a multi-term laboratory of exhibition-making and theory in relation to the public sphere. Students work collaboratively to conceptualize, research and organize a culminating project in Los Angeles, an exhibition with a connected publication and programming.

About the USC Roski School of Fine Arts
First organized in 1883, the USC Roski School of Fine Arts is the oldest art school in Southern California. A supportive environment for experimentation in visual art of all media, the school encourages interdisciplinary, progressive approaches to studio art, design, curatorial practice, and critical studies. With equal emphasis on making and thinking, the USC Roski School prepares artists, designers, curators, and writers to contribute in new and meaningful ways both to their fields and to society at large.
