Postgraduate & Non-degree

The postgraduate semester at VCFA offers artists, composers, designers, filmmakers, and writers the opportunity for continued creative and critical growth within a vibrant artistic and literary community. 

Our postgraduate semesters, conferences, and retreats address the unique needs of writers, designers, visual artists, screenwriters & filmmakers and composers seeking to expand their creative practice. The same student-centered pedagogy that is at the core of our pioneering MFA programs infuses our postgraduate and non-degree opportunities, offering unforgettable experiences that push writers and artists into new, creative territories. Visual artists, screenwriters & filmmakers, and composers follow an individualized program to invigorate and expand a substantial research project and/or body of artwork.
