About SMFA

The Museum School in Boston offers rigorous programs and a unique interdisciplinary approach to studying visual arts at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Museum School has eight programs of study including Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Glass, Metals and Performance. Students are encouraged, however, to take courses in one of the seven other programs in order to expand their artistic vision and practice.

The faculty at The Museum School are pioneers in their artistic disciplines or media. They, therefore, push students to take risks in their artistic process. Since many of them do, many Museum School graduates have become and continue to be leaders in the visual arts.

Another benefit of attending Museum School is the access to such institutions as Tufts University, Northeastern University and the Museum of Fine Arts, with which Museum School has well-developed relationships.

Intent on helping committed students to pay for their schooling, Museum School makes a generous amount of financial aid available to eligible students. For more details, contact The Museum School today.
