Call for applications – Curatorial Practice MFA & Critical Studies MA, Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), USA
The Office of Graduate Admission at Maryland Institute College of Art is currently accepting applications for the Curatorial Practice (MFA) and Critical Studies (MA) programs through April 1.
The first MFA of its kind in the country, MICA’s Curatorial Practice (MFA) prepares students to expand the role of curators in connecting art, artists, and communities—engaging audiences more effectively by developing relevant, timely, and accessible exhibitions in both traditional and non-traditional venues. Through both collaborative and individual projects and interaction with acclaimed faculty, visiting artists, and curators, students learn to manage projects, coordinate cultural assets, connect institutions and audiences, and negotiate with artists and organizations.
MICA’s Critical Studies (MA) program provides an in-depth grounding in critical theory and analysis through an intensive, one-year program set in the heart of contemporary cultural production. Students prepare for a career influencing culture through critical expression—as writers, curators, critics, journalists, educators, or resident experts at academic, cultural, or public institutions.
Applications due: April 1, 2015
