The objective of the Art & Science master degree programme is to investigate the relationships between different artistic and scientific representational cultures and their respective cognitive and research methods. An inter- and transdisciplinary approach and project-oriented education should stimulate interaction between model and theory construction, and the application of methods, in particular, in the arts and sciences.
The central element of the master programme is a project orientation that takes account for the fact that in a scientificised world many everyday topics in society are permeated by scientific knowledge, which can lead to controversial discussions. In part, these discussions link complex fields of knowledge and their respective specialised knowledge and represent different contributions to our societys development. Here is a point of convergence for the - quite often different - questions that art and science pose and a creative crossroads emerges for finding or rejecting answers.
The requirements for the admission are an artistic qualification, evaluated on the basis of the submitted portfolio and through the admission exam, and to have completed a domestic or equivalent foreign Bachelor or Master study in the fields of fine arts, media arts, design, architecture, humanistic and cultural studies, computer sciences, or natural sciences.
