Malmö Art Academy offers advanced study programmes in fine arts at the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree levels for aspiring artists. Malmö Art Academy also has a well-reputed research studies programme. Teaching is not divided into separate categories of art. As a student, you can choose to move freely between various forms of artistic expression or to specialise in a particular form. Your studies will provide ample opportunity to develop your art and a firm professional identity. You will be included in new and inspiring contexts and acquire the tools to develop your critical thinking. To enable you to develop your skills, you have access to the Academy’s premises and your own studio around the clock.
Malmö Art Academy offers well-equipped workshops for work with wood, metal, plaster, plastic, clay, concrete, photography, video, and computing. It also features large project studios, a library, and lecture rooms, as well as the students’ own studios. Malmö Art Academy also offers a PhD programme in fine arts, mainly intended for internationally active artists, at the Academy’s research centre, the Inter Arts Center. The programme is key to current artistic research.
Our study programmes offer students the opportunity to work with internationally active artists and teachers, whose expertise covers a broad spectrum of interests and mediums. Individual supervision of the student is considered to be key. The language of tuition is usually English. The students’ commitment to and influence on the design of the study programme is given high priority. In 2014, Malmö Art Academy was assessed as being of very high quality, with regard to both its BFA and MFA programmes, by the Swedish Higher Education Authority’s quality evaluation of all higher education in fine arts in Sweden.
Malmö Art Academy cooperates with other fine arts programmes all over the world and has built up strong networks over the years. The education offered at Malmö Art Academy also benefits from the active artistic climate in the Öresund region, with its galleries, museums, and other arts institutions in a markedly cosmopolitan context. Lectures from visiting artists, critics, and curators, as well as various forms of collaborative projects, are natural elements of Malmö Art Academy’s activities.
Several graduates of Malmö Art Academy have become successful artists who have earned strong international recognition.
