Curriculum

The two central subjects of the Art & Science curriculum are Project work (28 ECTS) and Transdisciplinarity (46 ECTS). Courses are predominantly compulsory. 10 ECTS are allocated for electives such as Artscience practises (8 ECTS/year). The final part of the curriculum is the successful completion of the Master's project (46 ECTS).

Alongside the curriculum, an important part of learning is Extracurricular through the exchanges and initiatives the students & alumni organise themselves.
