Philosophy and Objectives
The University of Windsor’s Master of Fine Arts is an intensive studio program that stresses individual attention and the development of professional practice in contemporary visual art. Our program provides a critical and theoretical framework that fosters dialogue and experimentation through providing a challenging environment to expand definitions of contemporary creative practice.
The objective of the MFA program is to produce artists that are self-critical and culturally aware, capable of engaging in the contemporary art world independently and self-reliantly both in terms of technical abilities and expanding professional opportunities encountered beyond the university context. The work of the graduate students encompasses a broad range of practices, aesthetic issues, personal concerns and technical means. Our program typically attracts a select group of students who pursue studio work that dissolves the boundaries of traditional areas of specialization.
