About Fine Art

The MFA at Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) focus on studio work and corresponding theoretical practices. It emphasizes experimentation and multi-disciplinary approaches in the development of artistic projects. Students are offered the possibility to work within a wide range of media and theoretical fields.

Job prospects

There are no precise professional analogies inherent in the course of studies, since a career as an independent artist is inherently unconventional. Nevertheless the MFA degree  is essential for pursuing a career in academia or teaching at university level.

Programme components

The program runs over two years and consists of four semesters. Many elective courses are offered.
