Stockholm University International Master Programme in Curating Art

Curating Art is a full time Master programme offered by the Department of Art History in collaboration with the School of Business and the Department of Law at Stockholm University. The course faculty consists of representatives of these departments, as well as directors and curators at leading art institutions in Stockholm. Guest lecturers include practising artists, critics, curators and scholars practising in Sweden and internationally.

The programme spans over a 2 year period and consists of theoretical courses, including the writing of a thesis, a ten week internship in Sweden or abroad, and work on an exhibition project. The teaching takes many forms: lectures, seminars, and supervised work both individually and in groups. Furthermore, each student has a personal tutor from the course faculty.

Course organizers aim at an education that encourages creativity and innovation as well as an awareness of traditions and a responsibility for museum collections. In other words, they envision a field that bridges institutional and alternative environments.

Upon completing the Curating Art Master Programme at Stockholm University, the student receives a course diploma. Students who previously hold a Bachelor's degree fulfil the criteria for a Master's degree. Deadline for applications is 15 April 2009.
