Purchase College invites graduate students to join a vibrant community of decision makers and thinkers
The MFA in Visual Arts at Purchase College, SUNY, is a small, selective, interdisciplinary program that promotes students’ artistic, intellectual, and professional growth through independent studio work and rigorous academic study. State-of-the-art facilities include photography, video and scanning laboratories; wood and metal stores; and printmaking and typography studios. Nearby, New York’s large arts communities play a crucial role in school and extracurricular activities. Students present a culminating exhibition at a New York City gallery in one of the city’s thriving arts districts. The 2022 thesis show will take place at Performance Space 122 in Manhattan’s East Village.
The MFA / MA Diploma combines the MFA degree with an MA in Visual Arts and Modern and Contemporary Art, Criticism and Theory, with the Art History requirements completed in a third year of study.
As a member of the State University of New York system, Purchase College is committed to providing public education that combines academic excellence with affordability. Enriching their experience, students have access to the Neuberger Museum of Art, the Purchase College Campus Museum and the eighth largest university museum in the country; a renowned performing arts center; and opportunities for community engagement across the United States.
A dynamic community of creators and thinkers
Graduate students can mentor renowned professors working in all fields. In addition, students have access to a solid lecture series from guest artists and curators.
The position of Purchase College in the New York State University system offers a significant financial advantage. Partial to full scholarships are available as well as teaching allowances. Students can expect to pay much less than half the cost of attending equivalent private graduate programs.
