SUNY Brockport’s MFA in Visual Studies at VSW is designed to offer a wide range of students a highly flexible structure that combines visionary thinking and practical experience in the fields of photography, books, and moving images. Many of our students don’t come to the program with a traditional photography or visual arts bachelor’s degree. Often a drive to produce a visual body of work out of their experience in another field, such as creative writing, history, psychology, or computer science, brings them to VSW. And because they’re not always standard photography, book, or moving image practitioners, the work created by VSW students is often beyond conventional and common forms of practice, combining disciplines and techniques in innovative ways.
