MFA2 - examination
You work with your thesis during both semesters, but it is mainly during the spring semester of the exhibitions will be held. Exceptions are, however, some may be allotted a period before Christmas or during the first week of the following fall semester. You will be called to meetings where you get more information about when and with whom you will be exhibiting.
The MFA thesis examination consists of four components:
Creative Work. Tutored by one of the academy’s professors or external tutors. Judged after the exhibition in the academy’s gallery by professors at MAA. In addition the supervision from an external examiner functions as a ‘safety guarantee’. We invite an internationally renowned curator to perform this task.
Text. Not more than ten pages. Tutored by professor Gertrud Sandqvist and judged after the text seminar by all professors.The text should be analyzing, a discussion of their exam project should be done. Relevant literature reference is required. Use the Chicago manual of style!
Internal Viva. Performed at the academy, in front of the other graduating students and judged by all professors.
External Viva. Performed in the exhibition at the academy’s gallery and judged by all professors.
Master degree examiners are the academy’s professors in consultation with an external participant at the occasion of the examination. Who this person will be is decided by the Departmental Board.
