Open House: MFA in Environmental Art and Social Practice

Prospective applicants are invited to join a live information session to learn more about UC Santa Cruz's M.F.A. in Environmental Art and Social Practice (EASP) degree program program. Join the Zoom event to meet faculty and ask questions.

UC Santa Cruz is accepting applications for the EASP program in fall 2020, with the first cohort scheduled to begin in fall 2021.

This unique two-year residential program seeks prospective applicants who want to develop their artwork in relation to social and environmental justice questions, contexts, and communities. Headed by internationally-recognized artists, including affiliate faculty from across campus, the program integrates the resources of a great public university with the Art Department’s mission of educating and training students in cross-disciplinary, multimedia art practices. 

Students translate concerns for environmental and social justice into contemporary art practices through professional training, combining project-based research, seminars, faculty mentorship, electives, visiting artists, and peer critiques. Working individually and collaboratively, in the studio and in the field, students will experiment with different approaches to build their practices conceptually and practically, while critically and creatively exploring art’s role as a catalyst for radical change.
