Expand your horizons—apply for a master’s degree at Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design. Konstfack’s two-year master’s programmes offer preparation for careers or research and lead to  a master’s degree (120 credits). 

CRAFT! offers an international master’s programme in some of Europe’s most well-equipped workshops. As a student, you develop your expertise, at the same time as you have the opportunity to expand and deepen your knowledge and position your work in a contemporary field of craft. We use different methods and tools for critical investigation about, and through making and materialisation. The programme is characterised by a social engagement anchored in the understanding that craft can exist between and beyond traditional boundaries. You apply with a project that focuses on one of the following tracks: Ceramics and Glass, Jewellery and Corpus or Textiles.

Spatial Design
The master’s programme in Spatial Design offers individual in-depth studies and personal development within the fields of Interior Architecture and Furniture Design. Within the frame of Spatial Design, you will challenge your discipline and expand the ideas about interiors and furniture based on the many urgent issues that society faces today. The programme prepares you both for professional careers and for doctoral education. You will explore and design spaces and interiors as well as furniture and objects in spatial contexts. In your studies, you relate to use and function, experiences and atmospheres, the past, present and future. 

Design Ecologies
The master’s programme in Design Ecologies promotes design’s role in ecological processes, nurtures a design mindset that cares for multiple forms of life and acknowledges humans’ interdependency with other species. The programme is socially grounded, has ties to industry, and focuses on future practices of design, preparing students for both professional careers as well as further studies at doctoral level. As a student, you will work to create conditions to support socially and culturally resilient communities, biodiversity, and economies operating within planetary boundaries. We believe in designing “with” rather than “for” as well as developing design proposals (products, services, and systems), that can be conducive to life. 

Fine Art
The master’s programme in Fine Art is interdisciplinary and based on the conviction that artistic creation can draw on all forms of knowledge and means. The programme functions in the field of contemporary art and critical aesthetics. It is grounded in the values of the art department’s own history of socially committed education—for us art is deeply integrated into both society and debate. Our professors and teachers are eminent practitioners and pursue careers in their fields, where many of our alumni can also be found today, both nationally and internationally. This practice-based, highly individualised programme starts from your own project, which will be realised and intensified during the two years of your studies in regular consultation with your assigned tutor. 

Visual Communication
A norm creative master’s programme in visual communication. During two years you will be given the opportunity to challenge and deepen your graphic design and/or illustration practice in relation to broader social, cultural and economic contexts. With a take-off point in norm criticality, we study how identity, norms and borders are formed through the landscape of visual communication. Through this process norm creative and practice based methods are developed to expand your own practice as well as the field. This programme provides a unique collaborative environment through supervision, seminars, feedback, workshops and lectures alongside teachers who are active in their fields.

Konstfack is Sweden’s largest university for arts, crafts and design. Since 1844, we have educated a diverse range of professionals within these fields as well as art and sloyd teachers. We conduct both artistic and scientific education/research and currently have 900 students and 200 employees.
