Fall 2022 applications are now being accepted for the MFA Visual Arts and Sound Art Programs at Columbia University School of the Arts.

The Visual Arts Program is interdisciplinary and offers an MFA degree in Visual Arts rather than in one specific medium. The two-year studio program, taught by internationally celebrated artists, allows students to pursue moving image, painting, photography, printmaking, and expanded practice | sculpture.

The Sound Art Program, offered in association with the Visual Arts MFA Program, the Department of Music, and the Computer Music Center, allows students the opportunity to pursue creative work in a variety of genres and focus on the integration of sound with other media.

Both programs are holding virtual information sessions on Sunday, November 14, 2021. Registration is now open; RSVP to attend.

Contact the Admissions Office at [email protected] with any questions about the application process.
