General topics of a Masters study in Art

Your mission in life is to create something memorable or just express yourself in an artistic way? Then a Masters degree in Art would be an ideal opportunity to expand your artistic talent. Even if you are not an artist yourself, Art studies may be the right choice for you. By becoming an expert in art history and evaluating of arts, you might find your vocation as art critic or teacher.

Explore contemporary art, learn about art history or enhance your own creative style. The diversity of Masters programmes in this field gives you the option to concentrate on several specialisations, such as Art History, Art Therapy, Art Education, and Liberal Arts.

Of course, the study content varies strongly, according to your field of specialisation. Creative Masters programmes focuse on the interrelation between concept, process, and realisation of your artistic work. During the study period, you will develop critical art skills and competences that will shape your career as an international artist.

In art studies, such as the art of different countries and ages, you concentrate on art history, styles and artists. As an art teacher or art therapist, you combine art with pedagogical, medical, and social topics.
