The master’s programme in Tromsø is a two-year course in English that aims to give the students a unique footing for their future advancement in research, theory and professional artistic practice. The programme is aimed at emerging artists who seek to deepen their practice in a critical and discursive context where they are encouraged to develop their own initiatives. To contribute to this the master’s programme provides a balanced insight between local and international issues of importance to contemporary society. Completion of the programme earns the students a Master Degree in Contemporary Art.

The Academy of Contemporary Art aims to promote independent, critical and analytical thinking. Students are expected gradually to take increasing responsibility for managing their work to prepare them for professional life beyond the college walls. By means of its teaching and research, the Academy also aims to develop the field of art with new methodologies and a more profound understanding of its nature, and to contribute to the public discourse in this field.

The Department for Contemporary Art and Creative Writing in Tromsø is the world’s northernmost fine arts college. The Academy was started in 2007 and accepts only a small number of students each year for courses in fine arts and creative writing. The faculty aims to maintain a high international level and to develop its own particular characteristics, thus offering an alternative to other degree courses in the arts.
