What You’ll Learn

Our program offers a flexible structure to a wide range of students. We combine visionary thinking with practical experience in the fields of photography, books, and moving images. Students in the visual studies program become part of the Visual Studies Workshop (VSW).

VSW is a unique environment that is recognized internationally for supporting visiting artists projects. Photography, book art, and moving images are at the core of this MFA. The goal of the MFA is for graduates to complete a thesis that is strong evidence of their own working practice.
