About the MFA|EDA Program

The Masters of Fine Arts in Experimental and Documentary Arts at Duke University, established in 2011, couples experimental visual practice with the documentary arts in a rigorous two-year program. For more than three decades, Duke has demonstrated leadership in documentary arts, film and video, and visual studies. Drawing upon this commitment to the arts, as well as the university’s existing strengths in historical, theoretical and technological scholarship, the MFA|EDA offers a distinct learning environment that sees interdisciplinary education as a benchmark for significant creativity, innovation, and documentary storytelling. More information on the program, faculty, curriculum and application guidelines is available on the MFA|EDA website at Additional inquiries may be sent to
