Applications are now being accepted for the MFA Visual Arts Program at Columbia University School of the Arts.

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

The Visual Arts Program is interdisciplinary and 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 drawing, installation, painting, performance, photography, printmaking, sculpture and video.

Sign up for the information session.
