Because the Bard MFA curriculum is dynamic and taught by practicing artists who have commitments to their own projects, the faculty in residence changes somewhat from summer to summer. Approximately 50 faculty members are in residence each summer session; of these, 25 to 30 are on campus at a given time. A core group of the faculty returns each year or teaches most years.

Visiting Artists

Each discipline invites guest artists to give readings, performances, and lectures during the summer sessions. These artists may also confer with students in their discipline and attend presentations and other activities during their residency. Learn More About Recent MFA Visiting Artists >
