Study contents in the Masters

You are creative and artistically talented; and you are painting, drawing, and producing wonderful pieces of arts already? Are you eager to add an academic experience to your expertise? The Masters course in Fine Arts opens opportunities for every artist to deepen their knowledge and skills. Doing a Master of Fine Arts demands, to a certain extent, greater self-responsible work effort from you than, for example, the postgraduate programmes in Natural or Social Sciences. As you take your own talent and interests and develop these further, you stick out from the mass.

The content of a Master of Fine Arts consists of Theoretical History of Art, Techniques, Conceptualisation of Artworks and New Projects, Project Management, and your very own discipline of art. No matter whether you opt for contemporary, classical or abstract arts, this course will teach you new competences.

Differences in study programmes and job prospects

Be aware, that the Master of Fine Arts is a very broad degree course. Thus, universities may place their own emphasis on only certain elements or disciplines. Some universities, for instance, focus on the teaching of Fine Arts within this programme. This is why we can only describe your career prospects as manifold. Job opportunities open up, according to your specialisation, experience, and personal interest. They can range from museum directing, freelancing over teaching to working in other economic branches that require artistic talents.
