Programme overview

The Bachelor of Fine Arts programme at Malmö Art Academy provides preparation for an international career. We take your own artistic work as the starting point in teaching theoretical and practical subjects.

The three-year Bachelor’s programme consists of individual work in your own studio, individual tutoring from professors and other teaching staff, and timetabled courses in the major fields of artistic technique, artistic creation and art theory. Our internationally active professors work in a range of different artistic fields. This leads to important interaction at Malmö Art Academy and also gives you the opportunity to choose courses that reflect your artistic intentions.

The programme begins with a set of compulsory foundation courses dealing primarily with different artistic techniques and the development of the artist’s role over 200 years. After this, students choose from a wide range of courses in theory, technique and artistic creation. The courses are presented in the first week of each semester. The courses offered vary from year to year depending on the students’ interests and current artistic activities of teaching staff.

Students who successfully achieve 180 credits through their own studio practice and completion of courses are awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Students must also have participated in a group exhibition at Malmö Art Academy galleries and have written a shorter text based on their own artistic position. Professors at Malmö Art Academy act as examiners for undergraduate students and an external examiner is always invited to participate in the assessment.

A Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Malmö Art Academy entitles you to apply for the two-year Master of Fine Arts programme that we offer, or for Master’s programmes at other institutions.
