Post-Baccalaureate Certificate 2016-17

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Studio Art program is a one-year, full-time course of study that offers an intensive studio and critique driven environment for mid-career professionals wanting to develop their focus, those seeking to develop a body of work in preparation for application to a graduate MFA program, or practicing artists wishing to expand their ongoing studio work. 

With a combination of studio work at SFAI’s Graduate Center, critiques and independent tutorials with faculty, and advanced coursework from the undergraduate program, the Post-Baccalaureate curriculum provides the ideal balance of conceptual and technical advancement. Artists in this program have gone on to study in the nation’s most competitive MFA programs, to receive fellowships and residencies from institutions around the world, and to produce some of the strongest work in SFAI’s MFA program.
