MFA in Photography University of Hartford - Graduate Studies



Course info


Our unique, international, limited-residency program was developed and helmed by Robert Lyons for the engaged professional investigating art, documentary practice, and the photo-based book.

Our innovative program is designed for both mature individuals with established experience in the field and recent graduates who wish to further their practices. It differentiates itself from other programs by coupling intensive on-campus sessions in the summer with traveling spring and fall sessions.

This model enhances our ability to be a truly international program—from our students, to faculty, to off-premise meeting destinations. The art world is situated within a global market and our program is designed to access and utilize this enriching perspective.

The low-residency Master of Fine Arts in Photography is specifically designed to meet the needs of practicing photographers seeking the terminal degree in the discipline while maintaining active, full-time professional careers. The mentor-guided program structure requires two academic years (four semesters) and three summers to complete. Students are expected to be in residence at the University for two-week, intensive summer sessions and at one-week, off-campus residencies, in selected cities in the United States and abroad, during both the fall and spring semesters. Off-campus host cities are carefully chosen for their proximity to major photography institutions, practicing artists and professionals in the field. Currently scheduled off-campus locations include New York City and Berlin, Germany. During the nonresident portions of the program, students maintain ongoing contact with the program director, their thesis advisor and faculty through the use of online, fax, telephone, and other means. Thus, the low-residency structure of the program provides nontraditional, working students the opportunity to complete a professional, terminal degree while simultaneously continuing to meet employment and family obligations.
