Explore. Experiment. Collaborate.
Herron’s Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) program in visual art is a two-year, full-time experience with an interdisciplinary approach and research focus. As a graduate student, you will embark on a rewarding exploration of visual art as an intellectual and experimental practice.
With access to outstanding facilities, faculty, and resources within Indianapolis’ premier public university, you will have opportunities to explore, experiment, and collaborate.
Our emphasis in integrative studio practice will allow you to develop a unique interdisciplinary approach to research and making. Elective options will offer you the flexibility to emphasize your specific studio practice within Herron’s disciplines including ceramics, drawing, furniture design, painting, photography, printmaking, or sculpture.
Each semester, you will engage in research activity within a professional context. You will enhance your professional studio practice through production, presentation, installation, marketing, and critical analysis. Impacting the community through civic engagement, social practice, public works and professional development is also a key component of the M.F.A. experience.
