I came across this article on PH.D's in fine art. The questions the article asks:

1) Does a PH.D ruin the artist?

2) Does it deepen the artwork of the artist?

3) Do we really need a PH.D in fine art?

4) Does the PH.D simply create another barrier for artist and make it only accessible to a select few?

Now that you are a grad and continue working in the field, what is your opinion on this topic? Should the MFA remain the terminal degree or do artist need to get a PH.D like other disciplined told at Universities?
