Congratulations to the Department of Art for being ranked the #1 MFA Program in the state of Florida! The Florida State University Master of Fine Arts is an interdisciplinary program with a strong focus on research and practice. The program is led  by outstanding, dedicated faculty and offers a rigorous curriculum that challenges creative minds.

genericThe rankings of Master of Fine Arts programs, completed in 2016 by US News & World Report, are “based solely on the results of a peer assessment survey.  Survey recipients – one per school – were asked to rate the academic quality of fine arts programs on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (outstanding). Scores for each school were totaled and divided by the number of respondents who rated that school. The response rate was 29 percent.”

The Department of Art at Florida State University is a research-driven community of students and faculty dedicated to exploring the dynamic interrelationship of ideas, processes and practices. By crossing geographical and disciplinary boundaries, we both discover and create new opportunities for practicing art and design.
