The MFA: Fine Arts (Low-Residency in Boston) program is ideal for artists who work across disciplines in that it allows self-directed students to develop a course of study that might involve a combination of media, technologies, and techniques.
The six-week summer residencies in Boston foster an intense studio environment and establish creative collaborations.
Students live on campus in the Artists Residence or in off-campus housing of their choosing. Between residencies, students work under the guidance of artist/mentors through monthly studio visits and critiques, returning to campus in January for mid-term reviews.
Online art history and critical studies courses develop an understanding of contemporary art history and issues in contemporary studio practice. At the conclusion of the program, candidates present their thesis exhibitions and participate in final reviews on campus.
