Master Degree in Fine Arts
The Master Degree in Fine Arts was designed as an extension of the School’s undergraduate degree programme in order to create the educational conditions for the cultivation of an advanced approach to the visual arts. The Master Degree in Fine Arts establishes an artistic community and promotes dialogue that inspires and facilitates the creative process, helping the students evolve as artists and produce more mature work, while developing their self-awareness and independence.
The idea for the Master Degree in Fine Arts, which was conceived several years ago, was turned into reality in 2004, once certain conditions were met, such as acquiring academic staff for the subjects of Philosophy, Aesthetics, Art History and Theory, and securing funding through the Operational Programme for Education and Initial Vocational Training II. In addition, the creation of the Department of Theory and History of Art established the appropriate conditions for expanding the scientific community of the Athens School of Fine Arts.
The aim of the course is to secure the conditions for research and dialogue that will, in turn, cultivate the students’ critical approach to their own artwork as well as the trends of a diverse “new visual reality”. In response to this reality, which is characterised, on the one hand, by an unprecedented barrage of perspectives and means of expression and, on the other hand, by the advantages of instant access to information, the community of the Master’s Degree in Fine Arts enhances the creativity of its young artists and prepares them, spiritually and mentally, to make their own mark with their work, engaging with the new conditions created by the shift of boundaries cause by cultural change.
At the end of the project, and before compiling the final report on its results, the course underwent an evaluation process, in order to evaluate the operation of the Postgraduate Studies Programme so far, and its results for students and tutors, and to examine any suggestions for improving the educational process. The Project Coordinator and the Coordination Committee prepared a questionnaire, which was given out to all graduates and pertained to all aspects of the course, in order to record comments and identify the strengths and potential weaknesses of the postgraduate degree. After collecting the completed questionnaires and processing the responses, the Committee compiled its final report.
Finally, with regards to publicity, the School organised an exhibition of work by graduates of the first two years of the Postgraduate Studies Programme and a conference/discussion on the operation of the Master Degree in Fine Arts so far. A website, logo and prospectus were also created for the course.
