About the MFA

At the graduate level, UT offers an MFA program with a focus on sculptural work. The MFA degree is a 3-year program that encourages advanced aesthetic and conceptual development through self-directed exploration. Professional dialogue, discussion and critical thinking are at the core of this program. Independent studio work is balanced with intensive investigation of critical, conceptual and historical issues. Graduate students study with 3D faculty in Ceramics and Sculpture and receive critiques from School of Art faculty and visiting artists.
