UiB - Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design (KMD)

The UiB - Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design (KMD) offers BA, MA and PhD programmes based on an internationally recognised level of artistic research.We educate future artists, designers, performing musicians, composers, music therapists, musicologists, curators, and music and art teachers. 

History

The origins of the Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design go back to three privately run institutions that were later taken over by the state.

  •  1905: The Bergen Music Academy (Bergens Musikkakademi) is founded and later becomes the Bergen Conservatory of Music (Bergen musikkonservatorium). State-funded since 1981.

Education

Academic activities are organised across three departments with a joint administration: 

  • The Art Academy, 
  • the Grieg Academy – Department of Music, and 
  • Department of Design. 

Research

Each department has research fellows affiliated with both the Artistic Research Programme and other PhD programmes at the University of Bergen (UiB). UiB is also working to establish a new arts-based PhD programme to further reinforce the faculty’s breadth and scope.
