About Program

In Girne American University’s Faculty of Architecture, Design and Fine Arts, we offer a Masters program under the title Master of Fine Arts and Design, the aim of  which  is to provide an intellectually robust, creatively lively, and technically competent teaching and learning environment. We believe we offer an environment wherein graduates in fine arts and design who wish to develop and extend themselves in their chosen fields can expect to be both challenged and supported in their quest.

 

In completing their masters program with us, the candidates can expect a palpable sense of self--‐advancement towards developing the higher degrees of intellectual, emotional and technical competence whereby they can initiate and realize high caliber works of art. It is expected that through the encouraged processes of thinking and making, the candidates’ resultant works of art or design will reflect confident understanding of the interconnectedness of art, culture and society, and the ability to apply creative problem--‐ solving approaches in a variety of contexts. 

Career Opportunities

Graduates from this Master of Fine Arts & Design program will be equipped with conceptual, technical and social awareness competencies to be able to confidently develop new thinking and means by which to engage in the creative industries within their field, as required in our contemporary times. Students graduating from this program will be able to work as individual artists and designers; in teams in design companies; as art curators; as artists and designers in the field of advertising; as gallery and museum personnel; and as consultants in their fields. They can work in any field in private or public institutions that may require visual design communication skills.
