MassArt has a long heritage of excellence, as well as an extremely selective admissions process. We are proud of our world-class faculty and visiting artists and our state-of the-art facilities. The opportunity to work and create in a diverse community of innovative, hard-working artists, designers, and educators fosters a learning environment that encourages multidisci plinary practice and dialogue-a central value of the graduate programs at MassArt. This belief, shared across programs, creates a supportive space in which students can fully develop their vision. In addition to coursework within their studio concentrations, all graduate students take critical theory coursework with both a historical and a contemporary focus. These courses use the art and design communities of Boston and beyond as the venues for classroom exploration.
