MFA Programmes in Fine Arts at Malmö Art Academy

Malmö Art Academy is an internationally renowned fine arts programme at Lund University, Scandinavia's largest comprehensive university. The Academy is a state-financed school of fine arts with 74 students, offering a three-year Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) programme and a two-year Master of Fine Arts (MFA) programme. In addition, it offers a two-year MFA programme in Critical and Pedagogical Studies and a Doctorate programme in Fine Arts.

Malmö Art Academy invites you to apply for the Master's programme in Fine Arts, a two-year graduate programme in fine arts at Lund University. The Master's programme includes in-depth research in art through individual studio practice and courses in art and various related disciplines. The Academy has no separate departments. In the first year the students begin their advanced artistic work, with continuous discussions in seminars led by teachers, and during this first year a study tour to an artistically interesting place is included. Students organise their own curriculum, choosing from a wide range of technical and theoretical courses, many of which are taught by internationally renowned artists. Guest lectures from visiting artists and critics as well as various forms of collaborative projects are continuously offered at the Academy. In the second year students focus on their graduation work, which includes writing an essay and presenting a solo exhibition at the Academy's gallery, KHM. Approved graduation work meets the requirements for a degree of Master of Fine Arts in Visual Arts.

The international profile is an important feature of Malmö Art Academy. It is accentuated by the close proximity to Denmark and mainland Europe, as well as by student exchanges with art academies in other countries.

Application deadline is 1 April 2015.
