Guided by advisors and a faculty thesis committee, students explore a curriculum that blends studio practice, fieldwork, digital production, and critical theory, culminating in the completion of a thesis paper and an MFA exhibition. Students work with faculty from the program’s three founding units: the Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies, the Center for Documentary Studies, and the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image, as well as from the University at large.

The MFAEDA is best suited for accomplished students and artists who desire advanced experience in the production of innovative photographic, film, video, and computational digital arts in conjunction with a challenging intellectual immersion in philosophy and critical theory.
