Fine Arts - Master Programme

Master's programme · 2 years · 120 credits

Lots of colourful brushes.

Description

The Master of Fine Arts is a two-year full-time programme that aims to educate artists with a very high professional ability at an advanced artistic level. The programme has a distinct international profile and prepares students for an international career. The programme’s internationally active professors work in a range of different artistic fields. Not only does this lead to important interaction at the Malmö Art Academy, it also provides students with the opportunity to choose courses that reflect their own artistic intentions.

The programme is characterised by freedom of choice and independent study, consisting of individual studio work, individual supervision from internationally active professors and teaching staff as well as elective courses within the major fields of technique, creation and theory. The second half of the programme is dominated by the degree project that involves development and specialisation of an independent artistic project. The degree project consists of a solo exhibition and an essay. The main language of instruction, supervision and assessment is English.

The Master of Fine Arts prepares the students to develop into independent artists and provides them with an ability to work in different professional capacities. The programme provides some specialisation in methodology from other research disciplines, which forms a foundation for those students intending to go on to doctoral studies in fine arts.
