The Master of Fine Arts is a two-year programme offering more specialised artistic training through individual studio practice and courses in art and various related disciplines. During the first year students begin their advanced artistic work, with different types of teacher-led seminars and also a study trip. Just as on the Bachelor’s programme, students choose from a range of technical and theoretical courses, many of which are taught by internationally recognised artists. The academy also offers a variety of guest lectures and international collaborations.

In the second year students focus on their degree projects (60 credits), which includes writing a essay (approx. 10 pages) about their own artistic practice and presenting a solo exhibition at the academy’s gallery. Students who pass their degree project are awarded a Master of Fine Arts. Professors at Malmö Art Academy act as examiners for Master’s 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.
