Graduate Admissions

Founded in 1873, MassArt was the first degree-granting college of art in the nation and remains unique today as the only free-standing, publicly funded college of art in the United States. MassArt has a long heritage of excellence as well as an extremely selective admissions process. We are proud of our world-class faculty and visiting artists, our state-of-the-art facilities, and our 1,000,000 square feet of studio, classroom, and exhibition space. MassArt is a supportive home to a diverse community of innovative, hard-working artists. We invite you to consider joining us and contributing to this inspiring and vibrant environment.
