Working closely with this community allows for feedback and creative engagement that foster the highest level of creative growth. Most students in the MFA program in painting are given first-hand experience teaching at the University level. This provides them with the skills needed to apply for teaching positions in academia.
As a terminal degree in the field, our graduates leave with a sense of direction for their practice and all the skills necessary to thrive in professional art fields.
Graduate students in the Painting area have generously sized, semi-private studio spaces. In addition to the studios, graduate students have access to much of the department's state-of-the-art facilities, including several exhibition galleries, a Digital Fabrication Lab, a well-equipped woodshop, & two computer labs
