The Master of Fine Arts in Painting (MFA Painting) involves the discipline of painting. However, students learn more than just the classic training to become an artist. The starting point and benchmark of the MFA painting is the rich tradition of painting. The course offers autonomous artists the opportunity to specialize and develop into creative and 'thinking' artists who can contribute to art through interdisciplinary strategies, innovative and experimental research based on the interface between art, tradition, new media and science Afford.
Upon completion of the MFA Painting, graduates can make a professional contribution to the field of painting. They possess a professional attitude that is grounded in the quality of an artistic system, their own work, the constant critical reflection of ideas, and a high degree of control over artistic skills including the presentation of their work. Graduates are able to provide theoretical support for their work and establish relationships between their own work and the surrounding cultural and artistic world. The research aspect includes that after completing the course, research can be carried out taking into account the interface between painting, media and science.
