Studio Art: Three-Summer Master's Program in Berlin/New York

Join our email list today to help you decide if our studio art master's program is right for you.

Our 36-credit M.A. in Studio Art: Three-Summer degree program in Berlin, Germany (with the option of the third summer in New York City) provides artists, students of art, and current and prospective art teachers the opportunity to do serious creative and high-level studio work within a rich, global artistic milieu over three intensive summers.

The Berlin master's in studio art program utilizes a contemporary atelier model of studio instruction, with courses designed to organically intersect and flow into one another. The instructional approach takes many forms, including workshops, lectures, seminars, and critiques. You'll develop and refine your artistic voice and will receive personal instruction from faculty and visiting artists, curators, and theorists. Contemporary art theory is fused throughout the program with ongoing lectures, seminars and visits to museums, galleries, artist studios, and other cultural sites.

Large open studios provide a unique and stimulating working environment where ongoing dialogue and ideas are freely exchanged between students, faculty, and visiting artists and curators. You'll work across multiple artistic disciplines and develop a body of artwork driven by individual interest. Studio work is further enriched by evening and weekend events, social activities, and ongoing immersion in European culture. The program culminates in a group exhibition held during the final week of the summer semester.

You can choose to study in Berlin for three summers, or spend two summers in Berlin followed by a summer at NYU's New York City campus for the third session. You can also study in New York City for the entire three summers.

Additionally, we offer an M.F.A. in Studio Art in New York City, which takes place over two years of full-time study. The M.F.A. program admits a maximum of 10 students per year.

M.A. Application Deadline: February 1
