MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking
The master's degree in Book Arts/Printmaking is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the book as a point of departure for art-making and personal expression. This two-year program's concept of book arts includes fine-press printing and illustrated texts, visual and verbal narratives, and works that push the idea of a book toward expressions as different as sculpture and multimedia.
Graduates have the conceptual and technical skills necessary to teach, print, design, publish, or curate. Graduates of the Book Arts/Printmaking program have worked in book and paper conservation, and operate their own independent studios and businesses.
Exclusive graduate facilities and a multidisciplinary focus
The core program of bookbinding, lithography and letterpress courses is augmented by investigations into studio-arts, colloquia and seminars on art and the book. Graduate students have access to exclusive facilities including a letterpress studio, the graduate bindery, individual book arts/printmaking student studios and graduate resource room.
