Degree programs

The department offers a Master of Fine Arts with a major in studio art.

Concentrations are available in ceramics, drawing and painting, fibers, metalsmithing and jewelry, new media art, photography, printmaking or sculpture.

We serve our students by focusing on their intellectual and creative growth, fostering student’s practice, and preparing them for lifetimes of accomplishment and meaningful contribution as culture creators. The program frames the individual needs of each student through the development of conceptual, aesthetic and technical skills along with a strong community of active students who are leading purposeful investigations in order to discover, create or learn something new with or about the arts. While in the College of Visual Arts and Design, graduate students participate in arts research across disciplines and engage in the critical practice of the fine artist. Housed in a world-class Tier 1 research institute, CVAD is next door to the rich cultural and arts capitals of Dallas and Fort Worth.

Our graduate programs are led by engaged artists and educators who are recognized nationally and internationally for their intellectual and creative research and work to ensure that students realize their potential while pursuing their passion.
