Graduate Fine Arts

In a high-ceilinged warehouse in Culver City's burgeoning arts district, students have individual skylighted studios. Working with distinguished practicing artist faculty members, they develop a “personal vision” that has been filtered through history, gender, sexuality, culture and politics.They acquire the necessary technical and theoretical resources to develop an understanding of the demands of a professional practice. The program promotes strong interaction and critical dialogue among all participants, encouraging students to converse in the language of art. Students produce work that reflects their ideas, needs and ambitions, as well as the challenges of the artistic environment and contemporary issues and concerns.

Students and faculty alike help determine the direction of the program. Through student exchanges with the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam, students gain a broader context. At the same time, the intimate community reflects the real working of the multilayered and diverse art, design and literary worlds, removing the walls between faculty and students.

Graduate students are accepted for admission in fall term. Spring admission is on a space-available basis only and arrangements must be made with the Graduate Chair. All named scholarships are awarded by the graduate faculty according to admissions ranking. They do not require a separate application; all accepted applicants are automatically considered.

Completed MFA application forms and required supporting documents must be on file at the Admissions Office by January 15 for the Fall Semester or November 1 for the Spring Semester.
