The world is increasingly changing. Facing the prospect of a second collapse of the global economy, humanity is searching for a substainable economic, social and cultural plan to take us into the future. Classical boundaries between disciplines are no longer of any significance. Innovation is taken place in between borders of science, economics and arts. Do you want to be part of this future and be a ‘critical engaged artist’ of innovative and artistic concepts which combine entrepreneurial and social issues? Does your imagination go beyond the limits of science and arts? Do you think in terms of projects rather than classes? If so, iArts is the answer. iArts stands for interdisciplinary Arts, an intensive international three-year Bachelor’s programme for the creative and intelligent multitalented. It builds bridges between the arts, sciences, society and entrepreneurship. This hybrid is a joint initiative of the Maastricht Academy of Performing Arts, the Maastricht Academy of Music, the Academy of Fine Arts and Design at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Maastricht University and Van Eyck. The programme is an exciting cross-over of artistic skills, academic reflection, research and entrepreneurship. They are connected in projects and seminars with a strong focus on today’s societal issues. This makes iArts the first bachelor’s programme in the Netherlands to link interdisciplinarity in the arts to academic scholarship and partners outside of the academy. Projects The iArts programme is a 4 year bachelor’s programme within 3 years. This means it is a very intense, high-density programme. In the course of the programme you’ll work on a series of projects. You’ll invent creative and original solutions for current social and cultural issues, in the form of artistic products or artful interventions. Think installations, films, performances, and games. Think meetings, publications, plans, and enterprises. Each and every intervention will be the result of interdisciplinary teamwork. Your teachers are experts in their fields and have experience with interdisciplinary encounters. The study programme is built up around four domains; Arts & Society, Arts & Science, Arts & Entrepreneurship and Arts & Culture. The blocks are projects connected to domains, which are organized together with different partners in the world from the Arts, Sciences and Society. Next to fulfill these projects there will be courses with theory and the methods and techniques to become a ‘critical engaged artist’. The theory will be based upon art history, contemporary art theory, philosophy, marketing, management, creative writing, art and communication. Baseline In addition to the projects, the curriculum consists of a baseline: an in-depth programme with attention for theory, skills training and reflection. In theory education, disciplines such as art history, art analysis, dramaturgy, philosophy, text analysis and sociology are drawn on in order to explore specific themes addressed in project education in more depth. Examples of skills training are singing, design skills and Multi Media training. Focus During the programme, you’ll further develop your own direction of artistic and intellectual growth. You’ll also learn how to manage your projects professionally and make them financially viable. In the second year, there is time to further train your capacities in projects with external partners. In the third year, you’ll develop and complete a graduation project of your own. You’ll write a graduation thesis in which you describe the research done in preparation of your graduation, the concept you developed based on this research, and your artistic working process, as well as the entrepreneurial aspects of your entire graduation project. Next to the thesis, your graduation project consists of an artistic part for which you can choose your own artistic medium. Formal requirements - pre-university secondary education (or equivalent) - evidence of artistic aptitude - advanced in English - collaborative skills Where? iArts is located in the heart of Maastricht, a European centre of culture and home to 11,000 students. The city’s numerous festivals and events reflect its diverse cultural and historical influences. A candidate for European Capital of Culture in 2018, Maastricht is investing in an inspiring, multifaceted cultural climate. [-]

Training Program in Studio Arts

Metàfora Art School
Campus 1 - 3 years January 2017 Spain Barcelona

Metàfora offers a complete Training program for students who wish to pursue a career as artists. This option can be considered as a valid alternative to a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts (BFA). [+]

Best Part time Bachelors in Arts Studies 2017. “I think art, if it’s meaningful at all, is a conversation with other artists. You say something, they say something, you move back and forth.” John Baldessari Metàfora’s Training Program in Studio Arts Metàfora offers a complete Training program for students who wish to pursue a career as artists. This option can be considered as a valid alternative to a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts (BFA). Art is about understanding the way an idea is communicated to you. Art is about discovering the potential of a material or a form, but also about challenging beliefs before they become too rooted. Metàfora’s Training Program encourages students to investigate intuitively through techniques and materials, but we also support artists who engage in conceptual analysis, breaking conventional frames and narratives. What is important is the wish for thinking and growing, a need for understanding the now. What is the Training Program: aims and objectives The Training Program in Fine Arts is divided into two sections: Year 1 (Certificate in Studio Arts ) and Year 2-3 (Diploma in Studio Arts / Advanced Diploma in Studio Arts). Any of the 3 years of the training program can be undertaken independently (admission according to general admission requirements). Metàfora’s Training Program is small and intimate in comparison with the big universities worldwide, and this carries with it a series of advantages: the International Workshop offers a homely studio atmosphere where all students are attended individually. The scheduled activities are designed as a flexible support around the creative practice of each student rather than vice-versa. While encouraging both aesthetic concerns and conceptual investigation, the aim of the program is to help students acquire the necessary tools for independent artistic investigation. Metàfora’s training program provides a rich environment for growth and opportunity in the current, vibrant art scene. Among the activities specifically designed for these students are several exhibitions, both on-campus projects, as well as events and projects in different commercial galleries and institutions around Barcelona.

Bachelor in Arts Management

University Of Wisconsin - Green Bay
Campus Part time September 2017 USA Green Bay

Arts organizations make communities come alive – from symphonies to jazz bands, theaters to sculpture gardens, museums to community arts centers, public radio to festivals. All of that activity is made possible by arts managers. [+]

Best Part time Bachelors in Arts Studies 2017. Arts organizations make communities come alive – from symphonies to jazz bands, theaters to sculpture gardens, museums to community arts centers, public radio to festivals. All of that activity is made possible by arts managers. Arts management can be an exciting, fulfilling career for someone who likes to be close to the arts and artists and wants to work behind the scenes to make the arts happen. Arts managers work behind the scenes to bring art and audiences together – raising funds, marketing, organizing volunteers and facilitating programs. At UW-Green Bay, Arts Management is both a major and a minor. Many students pair the Arts Management major or minor with studies in music, studio art, theatre, dance, gallery and museum practices, English, or history. We believe that successful arts managers are equally proficient in art and administration – and we also believe that the arts are a unique industry and have management challenges that are not found in other kinds of businesses. Your studies will include arts management core courses along with courses in the arts, not-for-profit management and business. An internship or other practical, real-life experience is an important part of the experience. Who should be a Arts Management Major? Arts Management is an ideal major or minor for students who like to be around the arts but are not necessarily interested in being an artist or performer. It’s also a good choice for those who are preparing for artistic careers and want to have some training in the “business side” of the arts, so that they can manage their own careers, understand the organizations that hire artists, or even be prepared to accept administrative jobs between artistic gigs. We use the term “arts management” very broadly. Students in the Arts Management Program may be majoring or minoring in other artistic disciplines such as studio art, music or theatre, but students majoring in English, history, communications, business and economics have also minored or double-majored in arts management. Many arts management majors choose to minor in an artistic discipline, but Communications, English, Humanistic Studies, and many other programs can pair well with arts management. [-]

Best Part time Bachelors in Arts Studies 2017. Bachelor in Culinary Arts Management The IFT's BA Culinary Arts Programme is new programme designed with the modern hospitality professional in mind. The first cohort of students joined the 4-year course in September 2011 and will graduate in 2015. Whether they intend to pursue a career as a culinary chef; a front of house manager; or an all-round culinary professional, the 4-year course draws on a wide experiential base of proven lecturers and skilled craft technicians. With worldwide experience ranging from 3,4 and 5 star hotels to Michelin restaurants to event venues and the like, the IFT draws on this vast knowledge base to deliver a well-rounded broad-based foundation from which the students can flourish. With this in mind the IFT also promotes links and continually builds bridges with industry in an effort to provide much needed professionals with the potential to practice their craft in some of the finest establishments around the world – and indeed many IFT alumni are in fact doing just that. Lastly, the wide reaching culinary arts skills set taught in this programme by itself would be of little use without a thorough complimentary teaching package that incorporated such essentials as languages; culinary vocabulary; financial planning; management theory; culinary culture; trends in gastronomy; human resources and organisational behaviour; as well as such things as environmental considerations and sustainability issues; legislation; marketing and entrepreneurship. In this regard the IFT's 4 year culinary arts degree course is dedicated to providing students with an unparalleled up-to-date skill set which marks the IFT out as a beacon of educational excellence both within the pan-Asian region and beyond.

CURRICULA European Literature Fashion, Arts, Visual Cultures Fine Arts, Media and Visual Cultures History Philology and Education ENTRY TESTS There is no selection test for enrolment in the course, but there is a test to ascertain the student's initial level of competences. Students enrolled in the first year of the Degree Course in General Arts are required to have reached a level of proficiency in Italian Language and Literature, History and General Knowledge. Each year, entry tests are held in September. SERVICES FOR THE DEGREE COURSE Admission Admission to Italian Universities is possible only if the student holds a Diploma di Maturità ("A" Levels/Higher School Certificate) gained after 5 years at a high school. On-line self-tests Evaluation tests are freely available on line on the University Website for the following foreign languages: French, English, Spanish and German, as well as tests for Latin. Passing these tests ensures that students have the minimum linguistic competences required to then take the Foreign Language Tests attesting to their knowledge of the language and follow the lessons on Latin Language and Literature which are part of their Study Plan. Bridging courses The Department of Letters and Philosophy offers students a preparatory course in Latin Language to help students with no previous specific background in the language to reach the necessary level of linguistic knowledge. It offers elementary Latin and is aimed at students who have never studied the language. The 60-hour course involves four hours of lessons every day. Students with a basic knowledge of the language but who during their high school education did not reach the level of competence required by the university may also attend the Latin preparatory course. Before deciding to enrol in the Course, students should take the relevant on-line self-test. Tutoring The Department offers a tutoring service involving teaching staff, tutors and fellow students. The aim is to assist and advise students in their studies. In particular, help is given to newly-enrolled students in the weeks just before lessons start and assistance is given as regards transfers from vecchio ordinamento to nuovo ordinamento, and from other universities or other degree courses. Advice is given also as regards the student's choice of specialization and his study and training projects. Training Various opportunities are offered which are linked to the student's training and thesis topic. These are the result of collaboration between the University and host companies or public bodies, both of which aim to identify the trainee's objectives, plan the activities to be undertaken by the trainee (backed up and supervised by the university teaching staff and tutors) and outline the end result. International relations The Department has implemented collaboration and international exchanges with the Universities of Barcelona, Perpignan, Geneva, Leeds, Paris (Paris XII – Val de Marne) ...

Radboud University
Campus 3 years September 2017 Netherlands Nijmegen

Are you passionate about culture? Do you like sitting front row – be it at music festivals, Shakespearean tragedies, art-house-films, television series, cutting edge exhibitions or poetry slams? And are you interested in developing new skills for analyzing and describing your experiences from a range of theoretical perspectives? Are you ready to join the social and political debate on the arts? Then the Bachelor's programme in Arts and Culture Studies at the Radboud University Nijmegen is just the thing for you. [+]

Best Part time Bachelors in Arts Studies 2017. The programme focuses on art in its various forms: fine arts, literature, music, theatre, film and digital media. The approach is both interdisciplinary and multi-medial: you will not only analyse these art forms in and by themselves, but also learn to compare and contrast them. You are invited to explore art and culture from a number of theoretical, historical, political and social perspectives, incorporating European, North American and global views on (the value of) culture. Arts and Culture Studies teaches you to discern differences between art forms, and between contemporary and historical valuations of art; explain how arts and culture are socially, politically and ideologically constructed; apply theoretical notions to analyze works of art or cultural phenomena; formulate a clear and well-founded vision on art and (popular) culture; write academically sound essays that contribute to current debates on art and culture. Arts and Culture Studies is the leading programme in culture studies in the Netherlands: it has been ranked first in the authoritative Elsevier ranking seven times in a row (2009-2015). Why study at Radboud University You will be trained by an international staff of leading researchers in the humanities; As a first-year student, you will have your own lecturer-mentor who will help you find your way in your studies and settle down in Nijmegen; The programme includes skill learning courses (Academic writing, Academic communication and Professional skills) in which you learn how to present, discuss and write academic papers and how to participate in current debate; Throughout the programme, you are encouraged to engage in small but challenging research projects of your own, individually or in small groups; During class, the academic staff enjoys and encourages discussion and student participation. Study programme Year one The first year of the Bachelor's introduces you to the history of the arts (from literature to theatre, music, fine arts and film, and from the classics to digital art), to theories of culture, and to methods of analysis. It also encourages you to consider the question of the importance of art: how to truly appreciate the value of art and culture in today’s society? Year two The second year broadens the scope and includes courses offering both European and North American perspectives - on popular culture, American music and art, cultural diversity, globalisation, and intertextuality. Year three The third year deepens your understanding of culture, with three in-depth courses on visual culture and mass culture, and three courses reflecting on different aspects of the culture industry: Popular aesthetics, Screen cultures and The culture of fashion.
