The Piet Zwart Institute, which is part of the Willem de Kooning Academy and Hogeschool Rotterdam, has four Master courses: Fine Art, Interior Architecture and Retail Design, Media Design & Communication, and Art Education. All are founded on a shared interest in the complex social, cultural and political underpinnings of each discipline. Through a uniquely tailored curriculum combining collective learning, individual tutorial attention, practice-based research and theoretical enquiry, our courses educate professionals who have a critically reflective, innovative, questioning, and imaginative approach to their work. Our graduates not only establish themselves in their field, but also challenge and creatively define the perimeters of their profession.
