Novia University of Applied Sciences acts along the Swedish-speaking parts of the Finnish coastline. With over 4000 students and a staff of about 300, Novia is the largest Swedish-speaking university of applied sciences in Finland. High-class and state-of-the-art degree programs provide students with a proper platform for their future careers. The Department of Culture is located in Campus Allegro, a living center of art and creativity, in Jakobstad/Pietarsaari.

The focus of the Master of Culture and Arts program is on creating the possibility for professional artists to create the international network that is relevant for their work. The program consists of 60 ECTS credits and runs from September 2019 to December 2020. The degree title is Master of Culture and Arts. The Berlin based curator Power Ekroth is the head teacher for the program.

The program consists of eight weeks of on-location studies, with intense periods of self-directed long distance studies in between. The program has an international profile and will feature experts from various fields within the art world. Two of the blocks will be held in Campus Allegro, Jakobstad (10-14 days), Finland. Four of the blocks of on-location studies will consist of trips (5-8 days) to various centers in the art world, in different cities around the world (preliminary destinations: Istanbul, Berlin, Dubai, Stockholm).
