Already thinking about the next step beyond your BFA? A lot can happen in just one extra year—why not stay and get your Master's degree?

Moore's one-of-a-kind 4+1 BFA + MA programs are official academic pathways open to ALL Moore undergraduate students. Choose from one of the following paths, depending on your undergraduate major:

  • BFA in Art Education + MA in Art Education with an Emphasis in Special Populations
  • BFA in any major (except Art Education) + MA in Socially Engaged Art

Students who declare their intent to apply to the 4+1 program will gain special access to Graduate Studies events as an undergraduate student.

PLUS: Each accepted 4+1 student receives a $10,000 graduate fellowship!

Requirements for 4+1 applicants include:
  • A 4+1 application form (contact to receive the form)
  • ‚ÄčThe names of two Moore faculty members, who can serve as references
  • A personal Statement
  • An interview with the graduate program director of the MA program of your choice
  • A culminating GPA at the time of graduation of 3.0 or higher
  • Note: Applicants may be asked to submit a portfolio or online gallery link, as well as a writing sample

Applicants must apply by January 20 of their senior year to be guaranteed a $10,000 fellowship if accepted into the 4+1 program. All 4+1 applications received after January 20th will be considered on a rolling basis and will not be guaranteed a graduate fellowship.

Applications received before January 20 will be reviewed by the Graduate Admissions Committee in February. Official notification will be sent in March. Accepted Moore seniors who have submitted a FAFSA before February 1 will also receive financial aid information with their official acceptance letter, which will includes the Moore 4+1 $10,000 Graduate Fellowship.
