The MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts at Duke University was founded by three units at Duke University: the Center for Documentary Studies, the Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies, and the Program in Arts of the Moving Image. Successful completion of the unique two-year program requires the development of a complex understanding of documentary practices and traditions as well as creative skills in experimental media and new technologies.

The application period is now open for fall 2014 admission. Application and portfolio information can be found here. The application deadline is January 31, 2014.
