MFA in Art Criticism & Writing

Call for Applications

The Art Criticism & Writing graduate program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City offers a two-year course of study leading to an MFA degree. SVA is one of the nation's leading independent colleges of art and design for students who want to improve their writing and advance their knowledge of contemporary art, theory, and history. The programme offers specialized instruction from practitioner-teachers. The core faculty is joined by visiting critics and scholars who come into the program in various capacities on a frequent basis.

The sixty-credit program offers foundation courses in the bases of criticism and the fundamentals of critical writing, leading to the completion of the thesis in the final term. The small class size allows a great deal of one-on-one time with the faculty and extensive dialogue with other students.

Applications for the Fall 2008 term will be accepted until 1 June 2008. Scholarship packages are available on a competitive basis.
