About CGU Art

 
 

CGU Art provides the space, the tools, and a rich environment for individual art making and experimentation.

We are an incubator of creativity and thought, where a community of artists and teachers actively engages with culture, addressing the issues and concerns of our time through the making of art objects and experiences. We challenge convention, celebrate individual endeavors, foster collaboration and encourage you to make the art you want to make.

The degree requirements are in keeping with the recommendations of the CAA (College Art Association). The MFA Degree is a 60 unit degree accomplished in four semesters. Twenty-four units are required in your studio practice. Eight units are in critical theory, eight units in art history, and four units in writing/thesis. The remaining units may be studio or electives.

Also required are participation in the first year MFA student and second year MFA student group exhibitions, participation in one discussion group per semester, and a solo MFA thesis exhibition.

The Claremont Graduate University admits only graduate students. All energy is directed specifically towards the needs of an advanced level of practice. While faculty and visitors give you the best of their professional expertise, it is a self-motivated program in which you are seen as the center of your own education.
