Art, MA: Studio Art

The specialization in Studio Art is interdisciplinary, students can focus in one specific area of focus or expand into other areas of research. Students choosing a specific focus area may still take courses across studio disciplines, but “InterMedia” is intended to be an integrated focus that combines two or more broad disciplines.

The program is structured to ensure a broad and balanced integration of media, processes and concerns allowing a rich combination of tradition and innovation. Engagement with disciplines outside of art and design and within the local, national, and international community is also encouraged, expected and supported. The hallmark of the department is its commitment to diverse ideas and approaches to art that foster an experimental attitude in keeping with contemporary art practice.
