Dear all,

The TRANSART INSTITUTE offers Europe's first low-residency MFA program. 
Students are free to pursue work in any media art-related genre and create 
their own course of study, working independently and with the support of 
self-chosen faculty and artist mentors. Three intensive residencies permit 
students to continue with their professional life while participating in 
the program.

The MFA, unlike most master's degrees, is used as a guarantee of a high 
level of professional competence in the visual arts. It is also accepted as 
an indication that the recipient has reached the end of the formal aspects 
of his/her education in the making of art, that is to say, it is the 
terminal degree in visual arts education and thus equivalent to terminal 
degrees in other fields, such as the Ph.D. or Ed.D. (cf. CAA website: 
<http://www.collegeart.org/caa/ethics/mfa_standards.html)>http://www.collegeart.org/caa/ethics/mfa_standards.html) 


Genres include: Animation, Cyber Art, Experimental Art, Film/Video, Graphic 
Design, Installation Art, Interactive Art, Interdisciplinary Art, 
Performance Art, Photography, and Sound/Music.

Deadline for receipt of summer 2004 applications: August 1, 2004
