Konstfack’s Master’s Program in Arts, Crafts and Design 2008/2009

Konstfack is the largest university college of arts, crafts and design in Sweden. Established in 1844, the school today has become a thriving, modern campus. Our Master’s Program comprises nine separate Master’s Groups, hosted by individual departments under the supervision of professors and faculty:


-Formgiving Intelligence


-Experience Design

-Art in the Public Realm

-WIRE write + interpret + research + exhibit

-Ceramics and Glass

-Jewellery + Corpus

-Textiles in the Expanded Field

Our graduate level program, a two-year program that leads to a Master’s of Arts in Fine Art, Design or Crafts, fuses design, art, history, theory and criticism into compelling forms of inquiry based on studio work and practical experience. Students are encouraged to design elements of their own course of study, across different departments at Konstfack. With individual teaching from prominent professors, faculty, visiting practitioners and theoreticians, and with access to workshop facilities that few institutions can match, our students are well prepared for future careers and doctoral studies.

Each Master’s Group combines broad study with close analysis of your chosen field. A part of the Master’s program is made up of compulsory courses which are the same for all Master’s students. These introduce you to a wide range of theories and methodologies in practice-based research, and show how these can be applied in your creative practice. Elective courses, offered by individual departments at Konstfack, provide opportunities for further shaping your chosen specialization. For elective courses, you decide with your supervisor which courses would best serve your specific interests and aims.

General Requirements

The Master’s Program is designed for students with a Bachelor’s degree, a professional degree with a minimum of 180 academic credits (ECTS), or an equivalent foreign degree. Exceptions to these degree requirements may be made for students who have acquired equivalency by other means. You should have a good command of spoken and written English, a clear vision of your educational goals, be informed about current research and development work in your discipline, and able to work independently.


Final date for applications: March 1st, 2008.

Final date for portfolios: March 10th, 2008.

Each Master’s Group has specific application requirements.
