The School of Art at Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts is now accepting applications for to its MFA in Studio Arts degree.

Our MFA brings together faculty, students, and visiting artists from across the country and around the world to take part in the creation and discussion of contemporary art through seminars; studio visits with visiting artists, nationally and internationally recognized faculty, group critiques, as well as the opportunity to participate in courses throughout Syracuse University.

As an art school within a research university, the emphasis of the MFA program is on the creation of innovative modes of artistic production. Offering both a two and three year program, our curriculum affords the opportunity to work within one of our nationally recognized areas or across disciplines, enabling artists to develop a course of study particular to their research and practice.

Graduates are provided a research studio as well as complete access to over more than 70,000 square feet of shared facilities and shops within studio intensive areas. With a dedicated graduate-run gallery, Random Access, MFA candidates have opportunities to exhibit and take part in the curation of work as well as reach beyond the campus into the community.

The Semester Residency Program is designed as a career development opportunity for MFA candidates in sStudio aArts. Focused on both the development of studio/creative practices and the essential professional skills required of today’s contemporary artist, the program immerses students in internationally recognized arts centers, including Los Angeles* and Berlin. Acting as a bridge between academic study and a career in the arts, the Semester Residency Program allows students to define themselves and their work in relation to the field of contemporary art, providing a means to find their motivations, aims, and direction in the myriad number of opportunities this field affords. Guided by resident faculty;, studio visits with local artists, curators, and writers; and numerous exhibition opportunities, the Semester Residency Program enables students to make the often-difficult transition to professional artist.
