All Arts

Learn about the M.F.A. Image Text program at Cornell University. Applications are now being accepted for the summer of 2024. Codirectors Nicholas Mueller and Catherine Taylor, former faculty guest speakers, and current students will give a short presentation of the goals and structure of the program, followed by a Q&A session.

We welcome applicants with backgrounds in writing, photography, film/video, digital and studio arts practices, and artists working across these forms and disciplines. Experience in both text and image-making is not required, but applicants must submit a portfolio that demonstrates sustained work in at least one of these areas, if not both.

Students in our exploratory, flexible, and innovative program will work directly with faculty and visiting artists during three annual month-long summer sessions in Ithaca, New York, and during two annual week-long winter sessions.

Please register to attend.
