Where will creativity take you?
Whether working as a studio artist or a creative in the commercial world, your visual and cultural literacy, and skills as a versatile maker and problem solver, make you an ideal talent in a culture driven by art, design, and continuously evolving media platforms.
Areas of specialization include:
- Graphic Design
- Sculpture / Metal Arts
- Digital Media / New Media / Intermedia
- Printmaking / Printmedia
Students enrolled in the M.F.A. program are encouraged either to explore interdisciplinary practices or to concentrate on a single medium as appropriate to their research goals.
The Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) degree in Art Studio is a three-year terminal degree. An M.F.A. degree enables you to teach at the college level, pursue a commercial career, or work as a practicing artist.
Applications to the graduate programs in Art Education, Art History & Visual Studies, Curatorial Studies, and Studio Art are made through the University of Kentucky Graduate School.
The School of Art and Visual Studies normally provides a full tuition waiver and a $12,000 stipend for all full-time graduate students. To apply for funding please submit the following:
- Cover letter
- Research paper or Portfolio
- Two letters of support from one of your undergraduate faculty (these can be the same as the letters submitted to the Graduate School)
