About the MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts at SNC Tahoe

The experience and exploration of embodied place is a central element of this distinctive program, encouraging students’ multi-dimensional relationship with their environment both here in the Tahoe Basin and within their own communities. Through an interdisciplinary approach to art-making, the program encourages participants to consider how we engage the material and social worlds of our respective environments, from personal, to political, to planetary.
