Master of Arts (MA)
The application period for Master's degree programmes has ended on February 15, 2013 at 4.15pm (GMT+2). Aalto University organizes student admissions only once a year.
The purpose of the education in the two-year Master’s degree programmes is to provide students with the demanding theoretical, factual, artistic and practical competence required for working in the chosen field, as well as the ability to independently conduct demanding tasks requiring art and design expertise, skills in independent artwork, and the necessary prerequisites for taking further education or doctoral studies in art and design. The degree consists of a previously completed Bachelor of Arts programme or other equivalent studies, plus advanced studies in the field of choice encompassing 120 ECTS credits, which can be completed in two years. These advanced studies comprise topics in a field of specialisation, research methods in the field of art and design, and a thesis, which can consist of artwork, design work or research. Applicants accepted to Master's degree programmes may be required to take supplementary studies.
You may only apply for one two-year Master’s degree programme in the field of Art and Design each year. Your choice is binding and cannot be changed after the application has been submitted.
