We warmly invite you to apply for admission to our 2023 and 2024 MFA & PhD Practice courses. We have found several ways to support you through this process, including monthly info sessions and one-to-one zoom sessions. We are excited to chat with you and explore your goals. 

Your practice will entwine making, writing and reflection to become rigorous and original creative research—in short; your practice is the research. Your research will culminate in the submission of an integrated thesis, which can include a presentation, exhibition, publication, reading, performance, screening, workshop and/or other forms of dissemination. 

Our praxis-centered programs revolve around local and virtual residencies. Participate in presentations, symposia, fora, topical workshops, research seminars, exhibitions, screenings, cultural excursions, sound baths, listening sessions and other events to enrich your praxis. Join us in the year ahead in Mexico City, Liverpool and New York.

Practice PhD
Our Creative Research PhD is for everyone with a specific project or question whose practice embodies or essentially drives their research. Your tenure in the program will transform your practice and your awareness of what it can do, significantly contributing to knowledge and practice in your field and augmenting your credentials for academic positions, grants and inclusion in research projects. 

One-year MFA
Our Creative Practice Master of Fine Art is for artists, curators, writers, performers, and other creative researchers with an established practice, inquiry and project in mind. Flexible, rigorous, self-directed and expansive, Transart's MFA supports you in creating a sustainable praxis while you develop a global community of peers and advisors. Fast-tracking to the PhD in your second summer is an option. 

Final admissions deadline for a July 2023 start with a summer residency in Liverpool is May 1.
