Academic Departments


Our focus is on creative investigation, risk-taking, and the exploration of your individual vision.

Today's working artists understand that their vision may take many forms: object-making, performance, film or combinations thereof. SMFA at Tufts' unique interdisciplinary, all-elective studio art curriculum is designed to help students embrace this approach. SMFA continually incorporates new media, new concepts, new theories, and new approaches into the studio curriculum.
