The Master of Fine Arts degree is a unique, 60-credit graduate degree in studio arts offered in two formats:
1) A campus-based program that can be completed in two years. Learn more about the campus-based M.F.A.
2) A low-residency program in conjunction with the renowned Vermont Studio Center, located just beyond the JSC campus. Students in this low-residency program complete six four-week residencies at the VSC, where they have the sanctuary to create while connecting with a community of resident and visiting artists from throughout the world. Students in this program typically finish their studies in three to four years. Learn more about the low-residency M.F.A.
Both programs prepare serious artists ready to take the next step in their education and offer the chance to work with accomplished faculty and motivated peers and provide the opportunity for students to focus on their work, make connections in the art world and immerse themselves in the artistic communities in the region.
