Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art
The Master of Fine Arts degree programs (Graphic Design, Studio Art) provide students with a comprehensive experience leading to the terminal MFA degree. The degree programs exhibit the professional intensity and high standards expected of all terminal degree programs. Recognizing the close scholarly and functional relationship between Art and Design, the MFA is cross-disciplinary and combines technical skills, creative work, inquiry, and investigation in ways that focus on the advanced preparation of artists and designers in their areas of specialization.
The MFA programs enable degree holders to become: professional practitioners in art and design, educators, leaders in critical thinking, and significant contributors in the contemporary dialog of their discipline through research and scholarship.
