The Master’s Programme in Fine Art offered at University of Bergen provides students with the artistic, methodological and theoretical tools to work in the field of contemporary art, and is designed to stimulate students’ deeper understanding of art and contemporary culture.


Key facts

The Fine Art study programme offered at University of Bergen is research-based, and the faculty members’ own research forms the basis for teaching.

Our master’s programme consists of four core areas: individual practice, exhibition practice, theory and writing. Each student defines her or his own artistic project to be developed over the course of two years through individual research, experimentation, individual guidance, criticism, and discussion with faculty members and fellow students.

Broad Range

Students have the opportunity to work within and across many different types of media, techniques and materials. These can be combined to suit the topic and goals of the individual MA project.

The study programme centres on the students’ individual projects, which can be formulated and developed in relation to different types of media and facilities. Students have access to workshops, technical expertise and guidance within a broad range of media and materials. This includes ceramics, textiles, printmaking, photography, painting, sculpture, installation, performance, audio, video and digital art.
