International MFA study program 2013

Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, NTNU

Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) is an Institute of the Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and operates both independently and within the University fields of studies. 

This unique environment encourages the MFA students to explore the potential for new practices across different disciplines and technologies. 

The MFA at Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) is a two-year study program with a 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. There is a particular focus on research-based artistic practice and the understanding of art as laboratory. The MFA program prepares the student to develop a professional artistic profile, and to contextualize their work in relation to contemporary theory and historical informed positions. 

Projects evolve through stages of conceptual and material development towards formal and informal presentation and critical, constructive debate. 

A collaborative course within the Master Program is Art & Common Space; it involves students from the Architecture as well as the Fine Art Department. The course undertakes different lines of research into spatial practices. 

KiT offers each MFA student a large individual studio. 
There is no tuition fee.
