Department of Art and Art History Studio Art

Graduate Program Overview

UT’s Studio Art Program has developed an environment of high expectation: self-motivation, intellectual capacity and responsibility. Our faculty have found that these are the conditions that best promote an artist’s ability to develop work of the greatest consequence. Within our well-equipped facilities, students explore the various disciplines’ parameters, depths and overlaps, discovering applications to new and traditional modes of expression while simultaneously examining links between art and the world. Ours is a vital community of diverse and communicative artists. Professionally active faculty, knowledgeable technical staff, a vital visiting artist & critic program and the tremendous research facilities housed at the University of Texas foster our creative community.

Degree Offered

Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Studio Art

About thirty graduate students and twenty graduate studio art faculty call us home. Ours is a three-year, full-time degree program. Students may choose to work across disciplines, but apply in only one of five areas for admission: Painting/Drawing, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture + Extended Media, or Transmedia. You will be able to glean much from this website. Most if not all of your questions will be answered here. Read on! We hope that you may become one of us.
