The Master of Fine Arts in Image Text is a low-residency program that brings together critically, culturally, and politically engaged practices in creative writing, visual media, and design for print and digital publication.

The Image Text M.F.A. is a unique 25-month program that prepares artists to make substantial contributions to the contemporary literary and visual arts. Three five-week summer sessions offer intensive in-person classes with faculty and visiting artists as well as access to Cornell AAP's exceptional resources and facilities. During fall and spring semesters, students participate in immersive international field courses and work closely with faculty advisors while pursuing independent study.
