The Bradley Advantage

Bradley’s Master of Fine Arts program, as the highest academic degree in the field, builds on the foundations of your studio art master’s experiences. You spend most of your time on projects from your art concentration, which is ceramics, drawing, printmaking, painting, sculpture, photography or visual communications. The three-semester program builds toward your final thesis exhibit and defense.

Successful Outcomes

In recent years, almost all students found jobs within six months of graduation. They’re working at companies such as Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Weta Digital in New Zealand, West Virginia University and Texas Christian University.
