The two-year Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program in art at Cornell University is an intensive, intimate, and diverse community that supports both interdisciplinary and medium-specific practices, augmented by access to the breadth of fields of study across the university.

Students work closely with a special advisory committee consisting of Department of Art and affiliate faculty of their choosing in addition to an average of 15 artists and critical practitioners that come to the College of Architecture, Art and Planning (AAP) to lecture and conduct individual MFA studio visits. The Department of Art hosts two distinguished Teiger Mentors in the Arts annually and provides both experimental and formal exhibition opportunities in Ithaca and New York City.

The program also features access to exceptional resources and facilities, an exploratory international travel experience, graduate assistantships, and generous tuition remission. 

Applications for the MFA in art at Cornell University are due Thursday, January 7, 2021.
