SACI’s MFA in Photography students live and work in the city that revolutionized art and has since served as an inspiration and catalyst for generations of artists and photographers. They attend SACI in Florence, Italy, for two successive academic years and earn 60 credits. During their first year, under the mentorship of their selected Major Professor, they put together a program that balances independent study with classroom study. In their second year, emphasis is placed upon career options for emerging photographers. Students gain practical experience as SACI Teaching Assistants and their photographic work is featured in major exhibitions in Florence.

By exploiting fully the advantages available through advanced study in Florence, SACI MFA students can become highly competitive when pursuing careers in photography and university-level teaching positions.
