The Bradley Advantage

Bradley’s studio art graduate degree blends liberal arts‐focused art theory and history courses with your chosen art concentrations. Choose your art focus from ceramics, drawing, printmaking, painting, sculpture, photography or visual communications. You also can continue to earn a Master of Fine Arts (MFA), which emphasizes professional application of your chosen medium. Beyond the classroom, you can participate in community art exhibitions and events, collaborative projects with other students and faculty, student art clubs and student‐run campus publications.
