The University of Saskatchewan offers a Studio Art Master of Fine Art (MFA) program in the Department of Art and Art History. The MFA program offers graduate students a supportive environment to develop a practical and theoretical understanding of their art practice. Focused on contemporary art and a thesis exhibition preparation, the two-year program prepares candidates for a career in gallery exhibitions, professional fine art practice, and as studio art educators. Through seminars, classes, committee meetings and critiques, students are encouraged to experiment with disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, self-examination, and growth. Individuals can choose to work across disciplines or specialize in painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, installation, digital and integrated practice such as video art and animation.

The Master of Fine Arts program provides students with a private studio, facilities, equipment, and gallery space in support of their solo thesis exhibition. Faculty supervise across disciplines and have expertise in studio arts, visual culture, curatorial and social practice. Each year, up to five students are admitted to the program and the selection of candidates is based on quality of work in the portfolio, intent statement, reference letters, video introduction, grade point average, and language proficiency. The University of Saskatchewan Department of Art and Art History offers financial support and teaching opportunities to all students accepted into the MFA program.
