The MFA and MA program at NJCU is a dynamic, personal, and demanding curriculum that offers an intense and close relationship with faculty and colleagues in a state of the art facility.  Each student is provided with dedicated studio space and full access to the Art Department’s production resources – including painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking and digital labs.  Our faculty will work with you on an individual basis, providing a consistent guide as you proceed through your studies.  Intense one-on-one and group critiques are the core evaluative methodology of the program along with an intense study of art historical practice and contemporary theory. 

NJCU’s demographic mix and its important place in the community afford our students a rich cultural and arts environment from which to draw and interact.  Our proximity and professional connections to New York City offer a global perspective and opportunities for career development.


The Master of Art in Studio Art is a 39-credit degree program intended to provide further studies and skills in a specialized discipline.  Students may choose a concentration in Design and Crafts, Communication Design or Fine Arts. The MA program fosters the intellectual growth and artistic achievement of the individual through a rigorous program of study that includes studio work, the study of art history and critical theory, and academic research. Students may choose to either write a final thesis or present a final exhibition for degree completion.
