SFAI Master of Fine Arts

Call for Applications

The San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) has extended its deadlines for its Master of Fine Arts programmes in Design and Technology, Film, and Sculpture/Ceramics to 1 May 2008. In addition, Master of Arts applications will be accepted through 15 May 2008 for programmes in Exhibition and Museum Studies, in History and Theory of Contemporary Art, and in Urban Studies.

Reflecting a long legacy of studio-based practice, SFAI's MFA programs challenge students to consider a range of approaches to the practices of art - conceptual as well as formal, contemporary as well as traditional. In SFAI's distinctive MA programs, students are trained to become rigorous critical thinkers capable of imagining innovative and unconventional solutions to problems and issues applicable across a variety of fields.

Founded in 1871, SFAI is one of the oldest and most prestigious schools of higher education in contemporary art in the US, focusing on the interdependence of thinking, making, and learning. SFAI's School of Studio Practice concentrates on developing the artist's vision through studio experiments.
