Mount Royal School of Art (Multidisciplinary MFA)

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Mount Royal School of Art was created in 1974 as a multidisciplinary program for graduate study. The program of study seeks to broaden definitions of art making, illuminate and discuss current and historical ideas in the different disciplines, help students toward their own profession, and assist them in finding their own voices. Because Mount Royal is not a media-specific program, students are encouraged to work in the ways most appropriate to their individual research. That study can be focused within a specific media or cross over and into other disciplines and media. The MFA is a 60-unit degree accomplished in four semesters with 48 credits in studio work and 12 credits in liberal arts. All work (practical and theoretical) is at the graduate level, and every effort is made to direct it toward an individual's particular needs. Mount Royal students are expected to locate themselves at the center of their education, participate in both the MICA and local communities, and take advantage of the many opportunities available in the major metropolitan centers of the northeast.
