How can you find the inspiration to create art that is true to who you are?
In our unique BFA program, you will access this source of inspiration through the Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) technique and express your creativity in four months (or more) of full-time studio practice guided by prominent and caring artists.
Self-discovery through art
As a student at MIU you’ll get in touch with your deepest self, the source of all creative inspiration, through daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique.
This research-based technique lowers stress, heightens clear thinking, and enhances creativity, allowing you to learn and create in a way that is uniquely your own.
Dive deeply into your work
Our BFA program is perfect for students who want to go to graduate school in art or enter the art world.
The BFA schedule will allow you to dive deeply into your work, enriched by critiques, readings, and group discussions.
As a BFA student, in the Spring semester of the senior year, students have a spacious, semi-private studio for four consecutive months (or more) focused on developing their art practice while creating a body of work.
Learn from expert artists
Our low student-faculty ratio means you’ll get the individual attention you need to find your own voice. You will interact with expert faculty/artists, peers, and a diverse group of prominent guest artists.
Our faculty care about your well-being as an artist and as a person. They will help you create a sustainable studio practice that supports a healthy, happy life and maximizes your artistic output. This will give you the foundation you need for an MFA or a career in art.
