DOCUMENT INFO
Description: [...] when the question is posed, "Is an MFA equivalent to any other academic degree?" I would respond that in my experience the MFA does lead to professors of equal caliber to those teaching with PhDs - at least in my own specialization. [...] if three of my own mentors provide any guide, establishing a studio-based PhD as a standard or new terminal degree for artists might also lead to unnecessarily longer times to graduation and longer lines at the bank to pay back all the educational loans for those who wish to study and then teach art. [...] we can move the pesky question of cost out of our way, and we probably never will, more than likely there is no perfect compromise or perfect system, much less an ideal way to educate artists at whatever level we want to discuss now or establish in the future.
