The Hunter College MFA in Studio Art is a three-year program designed to offer broad opportunities for artists to develop their work and an ongoing studio practice in an environment that encourages experimentation, production, and critical dialogue. MFA students work with Hunter’s exceptional full-time faculty both individually in tutorials and in small seminars focusing on student work and contemporary practice, as well as in classes in the theory, criticism and history of art. In addition, many artists, curators, critics, and historians are invited to meet with students.
