The MFA in Illustration Practice prepares artists to elevate their artistic and business abilities, blend media within new cultural contexts, and integrate research and critical analysis into their work. Students find new directions for the practice in the 21st century, actively initiate projects, and revisit their creative process while awakening their abilities to chart their own course as entrepreneurs.
