Bloomfield College Announces MFA Program

Bloomfield College and the Division of Creative Arts & Technology are pleased to announce the new Master of Fine Arts (MFA) graduate degree program. The program, which will officially launch in June 2017, is geared toward the needs of working artists and creative professionals.

The transdisciplinary program is designed for those working in video, game design, digital media, graphic design, music production, sound, performance, electronic, street, and visual arts, and other related fields.

"The program will be low-residency, allowing maximum flexibility for students, especially those who are working professionals," said Dr. Tresmaine Grimes, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty.

The College will offer students a rotating faculty drawn from noted artists, scholars, and professionals, from the arts and media. The program is centered on one-on-one mentoring, group critiques and informal salons.

Peter Gordon, Professor of Music and MFA Director, comments, "The CAT MFA program will provide the opportunity for artists and creative professionals to hone their skills and ideas, working in their own voices and genres, in a supportive community of peers and mentors."

It will take prospective students approximately two and a half years to complete the 60-credit Program at the College, broken down into three 8-week summer terms, two 2-week winter terms, and two fall and two spring Independent Study terms.

With Bloomfield College gaining attention for its highly innovative Creative Arts and Technology Division, along with the opening of the College's new Center for Technology + Creativity, an MFA degree was a logical next step in the program's expansion.

The new Center for Technology + Creativity opened its doors in the fall of 2016. The multi-level, 26,000-square-foot facility was part of an extensive renovation project that transformed the College's previous student center into an impressive new home for the College's award-winning Division of Creative Arts & Technology.
