The University of California based in Los Angeles, CA (UCLA) offers a fully funded MFA in Studio Art and Visual Art. The six areas of study—Ceramics, Interdisciplinary Studio, New Genres, Painting and Drawing, Photography, and Sculpture—are supplemented by contemporary critical theory seminars. Opportunities to investigate areas beyond one’s concentration are encouraged. Merit-based support is available in the form of fellowships, assistantships, and departmental awards; need-based assistance is available to those who qualify. 100% of enrolled M.F.A. students received merit-based support; the average, combined award totaled over $30,000 per student.
