Supported by renowned local, national, and international faculty as well as visiting artists and carefully selected graduate advisors, the MFA in Studio Art curriculum at Maine College of Art & Design (MECA&D) emphasizes the intersection of production, individual research, and critical analysis.

Students have the option to choose either a Low or Full Residency MFA. The Full Residency at MECA&D provides 24/7 access to private studios and staffed fabrication facilities, where students work alongside peers and with local faculty in Portland, Maine.

Among the first programs of its kind in the United States, the school’s Low Residency MFA combines intense periods of on-campus instruction with the freedom and independence of working from any home location, anywhere in the world.
