The Ithaca College low-residency Image Text MFA is a unique terminal degree program focused on the intersection of writing and photography.

Students in our exploratory, flexible and innovative twenty-five month program work directly with faculty and visiting artists during three annual month-long summer sessions in Ithaca, New York and during two annual week-long winter sessions in a major international cultural center (most recently London and Mexico City). During the fall and spring academic terms, students pursue independent study in close consultation with their faculty advisors.

Integrating theoretical, historical and conceptual studies with rigorous artistic practice, the program seeks to create a community that brings photography and writing into a shared arena of discussion and invention, including, but not limited to, cross-disciplinary and collaborative work. This approach evolves out of the creative interactions featured in our iTi Workshops, where writers and photographers, both emerging and established, gather to share and make work in an open, experimental and playful environment. Each MFA summer session will likewise begin with an iTi Workshop and retreat in an isolated rural setting, followed by four weeks of intensive coursework.

We welcome applicants with backgrounds in writing, photography and other lens-based media, and artists working across these forms and disciplines. Experience in both text and image-making is not required, but applicants must submit a portfolio that demonstrates sustained work in at least one of these areas, if not both.

Scholarships for national and international applicants are available on a competitive basis, and housing is provided free of charge for all accepted students during residential sessions.
