Hello everybody,
As far as I know (and they claim and all the arts magazines claim)
Norwich University in Vermont has the ONLY program in the U.S. that has a
Low Residency MFA. You spend 10 days there each semester and work at
home the rest. I was going to do that program but decided I needed a
break from my "day job". I am wrapping up my 2nd semester MFA work at
the Memphis College of Art. I chose MCA because it was a small college in
a large city. I get a lot of individual attention by all the professors.
I chose them secondly because they are the only school in the south to have
dual accreditation (regional AND national). Norwich only has regional.
(If you want to teach you should make sure your college has at least
"regional accreditation".) And I chose MCA thirdly because they accept
people with B.A. degrees. Many colleges seem to be obsessed with
getting people with B.F.A. degrees.
