The University of Houston School of Art invites applications to its Masters of Fine Arts and MA in Art History degree programs. We offer a low-cost, high reward arts education in one of the nation’s largest and most diverse cities. Summer courses in Marfa, Texas offer a unique opportunity for students to immerse themselves in a variety of topics as well as the rich and varied histories of West Texas. An expanding roster of courses include creative coding, land art and site-specificity. Alumni of the School of Art credit their experiences in Marfa as a high point of their time in graduate school, integral to their growth as artists, designers, and scholars, and a distinctive source of inspiration.

Applications are currently open. Priority deadline is January 15, 2023.

At the University of Houston School of Art, we celebrate the centrality of art and design as drivers of culture and recognize their importance to the vitality of a civil society. We train artists, designers, and art historians who will delight, surprise, inform, engage, and move us toward a better understanding of each other and our extended communities.

The School of Art extends generous scholarship and fellowship assistance to all graduate students in its program. Many students engage in an active program of paid teaching and internship opportunities available during the second and third years of study.

In 2020 the MFA student community relocated to a state-of-the-art facility: Elgin Street Studios. Students have generous private studios or open-plan workspaces to use as their home for creation and collaboration at UH. With new sculpture facilities, exhibition spaces and social areas, students develop their practices in an art production space with limitless potential.

Faculty in the School of Art are leading practitioners in their fields who have earned recognition from preeminent institutions including the American Academy in Rome, American Council of Learned Societies, the Andy Warhol Foundation, Getty Foundation, Guggenheim Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities and many others. Faculty have exhibited internationally at prestigious exhibitions including the Whitney Biennial, São Paulo Art Biennial, and Venice Biennale.

The city of Houston, the UH extended campus, is the most ethnically diverse and the fourth largest in the country. It is home to world-class cultural institutions including the Menil Collection, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
