MA in Studio Art in partnership with Florence Academy of Art

The Master of Arts in Studio Art is a reduced-residency MA accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). The MA program consists of 30 credits of full-time study, is entirely studio-based and is completed over 3 summer sessions.

Each summer session is 6 weeks in duration. Students may choose to complete all 3 summer sessions in person, or attend up to 2 out of the 3 summer sessions remotely. For those who study remotely, the required in-person session may take place at St. Peter’s University in Jersey City, or at the academy’s campus in Florence, Italy.

The MA program, with an emphasis on classical methods, provides training in drawing and painting to those seeking how to make realistic artwork. MA candidates are not expected to come into the program with high levels of technical skill. Instead, the program is designed to provide the knowledge and develop the skill set of candidates from a variety of backgrounds and levels of experience
