Stamps faculty2017

Through­out the two-year pro­gram, our fac­ulty of artists and schol­ars work closely with stu­dents to shape an intel­lec­tu­ally-rig­or­ous pro­gram of study, indi­vid­u­ally suited to each candidate’s areas of inter­est and expertise.

With six NEA recip­i­ents, two Ful­bright Schol­ars, two Guggen­heim Fel­lows, and a Pulitzer Prize win­ner as just a small sam­pling of the fac­ulty accom­plish­ments at Stamps, MFA stu­dents are able to make pow­er­ful, life-long con­nec­tions to promi­nent cul­ture-mak­ers of our time.

Stamps MFA Appli­cants are asked to iden­tify fac­ulty men­tors and advi­sors from the list below. Click­ing on each faculty’s name directs you to a pro­file page. For questions/​concerns, please con­tact us.
