"The MFA has completely changed my creative practice. Critical thinking is huge. The interdisciplinary aspect is really important to me - I love Wellington. I also love the collaborative ethos at Massey. We all work fabulously together" (MFA student, 2014, from a fashion design and business background)
The Massey MFA has a strong collective philosophy. By bringing together a small cohort of postgraduate students from design and fine arts, the MFA fosters intense transdisciplinary conversations and exploration. It is well suited to artists working from a hybrid or expanded practice and designers who want to develop adventurous work that challenges convention. The Low Residency mode offers the same intensive transdisciplinary engagement while fitting in with work or family commitments, and is flexible enough to be completed while teaching.
An "equivalent" qualification may include a Bachelor of Design or Bachelor of Fine Arts along with relevant industry/professional experience.
