Our full-time, three-year residential program allows students to immerse themselves in a community with state-of-the-art facilities, a tuition-waiver, graduate assistantships and personal studio spaces. The MFA curriculum includes graduate-level studio practice, art history, theory and professional practices coursework. Students expand their studio practice and break traditional boundaries to meet their artistic goals.
Recognizing the close scholarly and functional relationship between Art and Design, the MFA is cross-disciplinary and combines technical skills, inquiry, and investigation. The MFA enables degree holders to become professional practitioners in art and design, educators, leaders in critical thinking, and significant contributors in the contemporary dialog of their discipline. We have a robust visiting artist rotation of professionals who have made significant contributions in their field. This year we hosted gallerist Bridget Donahue and new media artist/author Manuel Lima.
Here at Georgia Southern we have a dedicated group of faculty looking forward to working with you. We are in the process of expanding our MFA program and its studio spaces and it should be noted that many of our students are receiving tuition-waivers and graduate assistantships.
