School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University

The School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University is where talented and curious students become artists with purpose. For generations, our graduates have worked across mediums, disciplines, and techniques to produce art that provokes thought and inspires change. It's a community fueled by big ideas, and the energy of those who seek to make them a reality. 

History

Founded in 1876 as part of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts was conceived as both a technical institute of drawing and painting and a school dedicated to exploring ideas by building visual literacy and expression. In 1945, SMFA began a partnership with Tufts University to offer joint degrees. 

Education

The School of the Museum of Fine Arts offers BFA and Combined Degree (BFA+BA/BS) undergraduate programs, as well as graduate and non-degree programs, with areas of study that run the gamut from painting and sculpture to performance to virtual reality.

Career

  • Our Career Center helps students explore career and professional development opportunities in the arts and tap into the vast resources of the Tufts Career Center. 
  • SMFA students enjoy robust support in exploring professional pathways. By using the resources of our Career Center, as well as taking advantage of internships, travel opportunities, and collaborations with our faculty, our students build professional networks and gain practical skills. In addition, there are a number of awards, grants, and fellowship opportunities available to our students and the Career Center team is available to help you with your applications.
