The MFA in Fine Arts degree program fosters students’ creative, intellectual, and professional development as artists who produce excellent work, are able to discuss and contextualize their work cogently, and who are prepared to enter various career paths available to artists. Course work emphasizes advanced studio practices, art history, theory, and criticism. A Visiting Artist Program that brings a wide range of artists and scholars to campus on a regular basis enhances the MFA experience by providing lectures, workshops, and critiques. The program culminates in an exhibition of a body of work, a written thesis that supports the work, and an oral defense of both.

The MFA, Fine Arts degree program at the University of New Orleans requires extensive research and writing as a fundamental aspect of artistic practice. Applicants to the program should document a desire and ability to engage in the highest level of discourse in all components of the program.
