Who Should Apply

An ideal candidate for a Master of Arts program can demonstrate their enthusiasm and interest for their chosen discipline through academic or professional life experience. It is not required for students to have an undergraduate degree in the same field as their desired MFA program, but prospective students should have the capacity to commit to advancing their skills within their chosen field. NYFA values life experience, and welcomes students who have recently graduated from college, as well as students who are returning to school after pursuing other creative and professional endeavors to pursue their graduate degree.


The MA curriculum is designed to help students develop advanced skills in their chosen discipline, giving them the framework to challenge themselves creatively. Students spend a majority of their time creating their own unique content, helping them to create a portfolio that showcase their mastery of skills and knowledge as they move onto the next phase of their journey.
