The best written guide is the AWP Official Guide to Writing Programs, but it's hard to find in libraries or even in bookstores. The latest edition - the 10th - just came out in the last year. It gives a half-page summary of every MFA program in the U.S. It's a good place to start, but of course it doesn't go into great detail. It does, however, explain what constitutes a good program, as well as the various types of programs (studio/low residency/research...).

  • Avatar Loni S What is the difference between a Master of Arts and a Master of Fine Arts in Graphic Design?
    Feb 11, 2009 by Loni S | Posted in Other - Visual Arts

    I was thinking about getting a Master's Degree online in Graphic Design. I saw Master of Arts is 45 hrs. and Master of Fine Arts is 90 hrs. Is there a benefit of getting a Master of Arts Degree? Just wondering if it is impressive on a resume. Thanks!

    • The distinction between those two degrees really depends on the school. Look at the curriculum and see which one better matches your interests. Maybe the MA program focuses on the communications theory aspects of graphic …/> What do you mean by "45hrs" and "90hrs"? Is that for the whole program, total?
