International Center of Photography–Bard Program in Advanced Photographic Studies

icp.org/school/icp-bard-mfa

The International Center of Photography–Bard Program in Advanced Photographic Studies (ICP), founded in 2003, awards an M.F.A. degree in photography in collaboration with the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts (see below). The two-year program, which is based at the ICP School in Manhattan, explores all aspects of photography through an integrated curriculum of studio practice, critical study, seminars, resident artist projects, and professional practice, including internships with leading professional photographers and photography organizations. The program’s core faculty and guest artists offer students guidance from some of the most accomplished professionals at work today, and the curriculum makes full use of the resources of ICP’s curatorial team and museum collection. The goal of the program’s broad approach to photographic practice, from studio work and exhibition to writing and publication, is to equip aspiring artists with the critical and professional skills necessary to succeed in all aspects of the field.
