Bachelor's Programme in Fine Arts

BFA - 180 ECTS (3 years)

Our Bachelor's programme in Fine Arts (BFA) is divided into a number of pre-chosen courses in the areas of own artistic work, contemporary theory and art history, writing, artistic work in today's society and artistic processes and research methods. The course in individual artistic work occupies most of the study time. In this main course the students work mainly individually but also in groups with their own artistic work. These are reported and discussed individually in tutorials but also in seminar form in the student group where each student presents his or her work and actively participates in the other students' presentations. Great demands are placed on the student to plan together with the teachers the content, focus and working method for one's his or her artistic work.
