MassArt Among Top 25 MFA Programs
US News & World Report announced earlier this month that the Graduate Programs of Massachusetts College of Art and Design are among the top-ranked MFA Fine Art programs in the country. In earning one of the top 25 spots among peer graduate programs MassArt edged out Pratt, Parsons, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts-Boston, and many others.
In specialty categories at the graduate level, MassArt earned a #18 ranking in photography, ahead of the San Francisco Art Institute, Carnegie Mellon and Temple University.
The rankings are published on the US News Education website, and will appear in the 2013 edition of the book Best Graduate Schools published by the US News Media Group.
According to US News & World Report, the rankings for the master of fine arts programs are determined solely based on results from peer assessment surveys. Sent to deans and other top academics at 230 master of fine arts programs across the country, the surveys ask respondents to rate the relative quality of academic programs based on a group of criteria established by this longtime leader in the business of rating colleges and universities.
