The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program is a one-year program that consists of two full-time semesters of studio courses (including the Post- Baccalaureate Seminar), plus one Visual and Critical Studies (art history) course.
Studio Art: Post-Baccalaureate students register for 14 credits of studio art coursework each semester of the program, chosen from across the SMFA curriculum. The Museum School awards credit for studio art at the end of each semester during Review Boards.
Visual and Critical Studies (art history): All Post-Baccalaureate students take one course in art history, either in the spring or the fall semester.
Post-Baccalaureate Seminar: The Seminar is a mandatory core component of the curriculum during both fall and spring semesters. The Seminar includes professional presentations, student presentations, directed group discussions and writing projects, critiques of work, and visits to museums, galleries, collections, and other sites.
