The MFA in Studio Arts represents the culmination of academic training in the visual arts. Alongside exemplary production skills within a given medium, our graduate students develop sophisticated understandings of the conceptual underpinnings of their work; of the social significance of their activities; and of the historical lineage and antecedents of their ideas. Housed in the Faculty of Fine Arts—one of North America’s largest and most respected schools for graduate fine arts study—the MFA program appeals to practicing artists who wish to refine personal content and forms through critical inquiry. Challenge yourself in a studio-oriented environment in the three-year disciplinary program, distributed among seven concentrations: Fibres and Materials Practices, Film Production, Intermedia, Painting and Drawing, Photography, Print Media, and Sculptures and Ceramics. You will be encouraged to reflect on tradition, experiment with new materials and technologies, develop interdisciplinary collaborations, and explore shifting modes of exhibition and intervention. Your position as a professional artist will be strengthened in a self-directed process that will also prepare you for the multiple roles in contemporary art practice including teaching, curating, criticism, publishing and research.

About University

COVID-19 Information: https://www.concordia.ca/covid19info.html

Concordia is an English-language university in the heart of the world-class city of Montreal, Canada. From classroom to lab, in our libraries and on our streets, the Concordia community is resolutely anchored to the real world — open and engaged, compassionate and caring. We are recognized for our flexible approach to learning, and for our commitment to examining societal issues from a broad perspective in our teaching and research. It’s an approach that is rooted in Concordia’s founding in 1974, which brought together Loyola College (1896) and Sir George Williams University (1926).

Nearly 48,000 students are pursuing their educational and research goals at Concordia. The University is made up of four Faculties (Arts and Science, Fine Arts, the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science and the John Molson School of Business), a School of Graduate Studies and a Centre for Continuing Education. We encourage our students to become active, critical and concerned citizens in order to enrich the world’s wealth of knowledge, bridge communities and, most importantly, grow and contribute. We call our approach “next-generation” — examining the issues of the day and seizing opportunities with a diversity of thought and an openness of spirit.

Our philosophy includes complementing classroom time with practical, real-life experience. It means being engaged in research opportunities, athletics, professional networking, alumni mentoring and more. It also means being connected to friends and dedicated professors in a remarkable urban environment that will make students feel right at home.
