PNCA’s Low-Residency MFA is organized to be an innovative hybrid of an MFA degree and an artist residency. The low-residency program has a longer degree-completion time (3 years), flexible schedules, intensive residency periods, lower cost of attendance, and the distance-learning component, which does not require students to permanently relocate. Furthermore, the program is interdisciplinary, offering artists of all media and stages of their development the opportunity to refine their vision Keep up with us on our program news and PNCA events pages, and on Instagram.
