The MFA program in the Department of Art at The Ohio State University fosters interdisciplinary practices in the visual arts through the framework of its rigorous but flexible curriculum. Our faculty, who engage a wide variety of contemporary art disciplines, are leaders in their fields and likewise dedicated to the personal and professional development of their students. At Ohio State, students learn to expand and strengthen their individual artistic vision by exploring the full array of creative, intellectual, and material resources available to them at the largest public research university in the United States. Graduates from our program are widely recognized for their significant contributions to the shaping of our cultural life in both public and private spheres. In the Department of Art at OSU we are breaking all the rules. Even our own rules. And how do we do that? By leaving plenty of room for X quantities.
