The Intermedia Program accepts applications only for the fall quarter. Admission to the program is based on acceptance by the UMaine Graduate School and a faculty review of all required application materials. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 for the last two years of upper-division coursework.
Application to the MFA in Intermedia at the University of Maine requires presentation of a comprehensive portfolio of work in any field and a creative statement, in addition to general admission procedures. The portfolio should represent either the past professional or creative work of the applicant and should give evidence of the applicant’s maturity, imagination and skill as well as demonstrate his or her potential for advanced graduate level study in creative areas.
Admission is selective and competitive based on the number of well-qualified applicants and the limits of available faculty and facilities. Each year the program accepts 8-12 students to form the cadre of incoming students. Those who meet stated minimum academic requirements are not guaranteed admission, nor are those who fail to meet those requirements necessarily precluded from admission if they offer other appropriate strengths.
Although we will accept applications on a continuing basis up through June, the following material must be filed with the Graduate School by January 15th of the year in which you plan to begin graduate study (in the following Fall) for priority consideration. All candidates must have a BA/BFA/BS or equivalent international degree. For more detailed information on the general application to the graduate school see the graduate school website.
