Konstfack's Master's Program in Arts, Crafts and Design 2008/2009
Konstfack, the largest university college of arts, crafts and design in Sweden, offers a Master's Programme comprised of nine separate Master's Groups, hosted by individual departments under the supervision of professors and faculty: Storytelling, Formgiving Intelligence, InSpace, Experience Design, Art in the Public Realm, WIRE write + interpret + research + exhibit, Ceramics and Glass, Jewellery + Corpus, and Textiles in the Expanded Field.
The graduate level programme, a two-year programme that leads to a Master's of Arts in Fine Art, Design or Crafts, fuses design, art, history, theory and criticism into compelling forms of inquiry based on studio work and practical experience. Students are encouraged to design elements of their own course of study, across different departments at Konstfack.
Each Master's Group combines broad study with close analysis of a chosen field. A part of the Master's program is made up of compulsory courses which are the same for all Master's students. These introduce a wide range of theories and methodologies in practice-based research, and show how these can be applied in creative practice. Elective courses, offered by individual departments at Konstfack, provide opportunities for further shaping your chosen specialization.
The Master's Program is designed for students with a Bachelor's degree, a professional degree with a minimum of 180 academic credits (ECTS), or an equivalent foreign degree. Exceptions to these degree requirements may be made for students who have acquired equivalency by other means. You should have a good command of spoken and written English, a clear vision of your educational goals, be informed about current research and development work in your discipline, and able to work independently.
Final date for applications is 1 March 2008. Each Master's Group has specific application requirements. For details and application forms see www.konstfack.se.
