MFA Creative Practice

This is a hybrid low-residency-online MFA program in art with residencies in Berlin & New York City and one-on-one advisement during the academic year. Students are free to pursue work in any art-related genre and to create their own course of study, working independently and with the support of faculty and self-chosen studio and research advisors. Short periods of intensive residency permit students to continue with their professional work and keep a balanced personal life while participating in the program.
