MA in Socially-Engaged Art


This specialized masters program will prepare candidates to critically examine the effectiveness and impact of socially-engaged art practices and explore the ethics, authorship and the history of community-based art. Candidates will also explore the historical, theoretical and cultural influences that inform social practice and engagement.

Candidates will study under the guidance and direction of experts currently working on socially engaged projects in the public sphere. Throughout the program candidates will have access to a diverse range of faculty and visiting artists, including through our partnership with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program and summer symposium.
