MFA Program: Advising for Students

Students in our MFA program will work closely with faculty advisors from a variety of areas. Based upon the application materials, each student will be assigned an advising team made up of faculty from the Scripps College of Communication and the College of Fine Arts. Learn more about some of the involved faculty.

During their course of study, students will add faculty members from their cognate area, and can realign their team in accordance to their evolving areas of interests. In their second year, each student will establish a thesis committee representing their creative and cognate interests. This committee will guide the student through and evaluate the third-year thesis project.
