KGFKO, 180 Credits
The three-year Bachelor’s programme consists of individual work in the studio and individual tutoring from professors and other teachers, as well as scheduled courses in major areas of artistic techniques, artistic interpretation, and art theory. Malmö Art Academy’s internationally active professors work in a range of artistic fields. This leads to important and diverse interaction at the Academy and also gives the students the opportunity to choose courses that reflect their artistic intentions.
The programme begins with a set of compulsory foundation courses dealing primarily with different artistic techniques and the development of the artist’s role over the last two hundred years. After this, students select their courses in theory, technique, and artistic creation. The topics offered vary from year to year, depending on students’ interests and the current artistic activities of teaching staff.
Students who successfully achieve 180 credits through their own studio practice and completion of courses are awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Students must also have participated in a group exhibition at Malmö Art Academy gallery and have written a shorter text (approx. 5 pages) based on their own artistic position. Professors at Malmö Art Academy act as examiners for undergraduate students, and an external examiner is always invited to participate in the assessment.
To be granted the courses in individual studio practice demands of you to have at least one (1) studio visit each semester with our professors and in addition also studio visits with our teachers and/or external tutors. Professors at Malmö Art Academy are: Gertrud Sandqvist, Joachim Koester, Emily Wardill and Fredrik Vaerslev.
A Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Malmö Art Academy entitles you to apply for the two-year Master of Fine Arts programme that we offer or for Master’s programmes at other institutions.
