The School of Art offers the Master of Arts degree in Studio Art and the Master of Fine Arts degree in Print Media and Photography. Enrollment is deliberately kept small enough to make possible the individual instruction deemed essential for a quality professional graduate education. Recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of America’s top graduate programs in the visual arts, the School of Art at Kent State University provides abundant opportunities for graduate students to advance their skills in all areas of studio art. We offer the only MFA program in northeast Ohio, and the only program in the state of Ohio to offer this breadth of studio specialties.
The Print Media and Photography graduate program at Kent State University aims to strengthen the students’ personal vision through emphasis on the conceptual aspects of the printmaking and photography disciplines. Facilities include fully equipped studios for lithography, etching, relief, silkscreen, digital media, darkroom for processing black-and-white film, grad studio with a dedicated press, and access to a school-wide digital fabrication lab. Students work closely with full-time faculty, providing them with individual instruction and mentorship during their education at Kent State.
Highlights of our program include:
All of the School of Art studios and classrooms are located under one roof in the Center for the Visual Arts, which had its grand opening in 2016.
Applicants are expected to have a B.F.A. or B.A. in printmaking or equivalent experience or skill, with a 2.75 overall grade-point average (3.0 in the art major).
