Tyler’s highly selective MFA in Glass program, marking its 50th year in 2023, is defined by a commitment to cultivating each graduate student’s unique voice, with glass as only one of many modes of expression. Students explore the intersections of glass, sculpture, installation, video, performance, culture, making and criticism – an approach that has helped create one of the most tight-knit alumni communities in the discipline.
MFA Glass students learn in an intensive practice setting with a diverse and highly accomplished faculty. The 60-credit curriculum comprises studio work, research, and seminars, and students participate in peer reviews with other disciplines. Visiting artists regularly give lectures and demonstrations and critique student work, widening students’ artistic network. Interaction among MFAs and undergraduates in the shop and the studio strengthens graduate students’ teaching experience and has led to the program’s strong track record of placing alumni in faculty positions across the country and internationally.
