Admissions: Programs of Study


Visual Arts (Graphic Design, Illustration)


Marywood’s Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program is a low-residency program designed specifically for working professionals: art directors, graphic designers, illustrators, educators, and other artists. You can earn your MFA in just three years, through four two-week summer sessions at Marywood, six study tours, and independent work.

Renowned Faculty

We believe that working directly with successful designers and illustrators is the best way to improve your own work. Our MFA program offers personal, hands-on training from prominent artists, like Ed Brodsky, Steven Brower, Seymour Chwast, Ray Cruz, Lisa Cyr, John Gall, Melanie Mall, Megan Halsey, Zina Saunders, Nancy Stahl, Craig Welsh, and Chistopher Zacharow.

Study Tours

Twice a year, students in Marywood's MFA program meet in New York City, Boston, or another large city to tour the studios of well-known designers and illustrators and visit ad agencies, museums, and professional organizations.
