Graduate Programs

Our three low-residency Master of Fine Art programs are designed specifically to meet the needs of practicing artists seeking the terminal degree in their discipline while maintaining active, full-time professional careers. Each program requires 27 months to complete.

Students reside at the Hartford Art School during a two-week summer intensive, and at off-campus residencies in selected cities during both semesters. Off-campus host cities are chosen carefully for their proximity to both major art markets and practicing professionals.

Meaningful Work Meets Real Life

During the non-resident portions of the program, students maintain ongoing contact with the program director, thesis advisor and faculty through an online platform. The low-residency structure of the programs provide nontraditional working students the opportunity to complete a professional degree while simultaneously accommodating employment and family obligations.
