The Ohio State University Department of Art offers an interdisciplinary MFA in Visual Arts with facilities and faculty in: Art and Technology, Ceramics, Film/Video, Glass, Painting and Drawing, Photography, Printmaking, and Sculpture. Students have the opportunity to work with faculty from across the department.
Graduate students have 24/7 access to private and semi-private studio spaces and
state of the art facilities and exhibition spaces, including both material and digital fabrication studios. The MFA program is a 66-credit hour, three-year program and requires full-time enrollment during that time period.
The internationally recognized faculty is augmented each year by
Visiting Artists, Critics and Curators who engage in critical discourse and discussion with graduate students. Additional OSU sites of interest for graduate students: The
Wexner Center for the Arts, a world-renowned contemporary art center located on campus; The Fine Arts and Cartoon Libraries; and the Urban Arts Space, an off-campus, OSU-run gallery in downtown Columbus. The Urban Arts Space is the location of the third-year thesis exhibitions.
