MA IN CRITICAL THEORY AND CREATIVE RESEARCH
The CT+CR Program combines the study of critical theory as a mode of socio-political critique and creative research as a process-driven form of inquiry, pushing both theory and research in new directions within the context of a 21st-century art school. The program is devoted to people and ideas and to rethinking the present and future of cultural production; of arts-based research and research-based arts; of curatorial practice, documentary, and the Archive; and of social and political reconfiguration in relation to major sites of contemporary contestation. The program accepts applications from distinctive graduates in the arts, humanities, and sciences who are capable of thinking completely outside any box and who are interested in developing new combinations of art, theory, research, and critique. Students admitted into the program study toward an MA (one year + summer intensive) or a joint MA/MFA (three years + summer intensive).
