NEW MA Programmes


Create the Future
With creative thought, we change the world. Art is man´s way of understanding himself, his environment and his history and of creating a future. In the last few years, the economic value of the creative industries has become apparent to all. By art we change attitudes, we change people´s lives and in so doing make the world a better place.

This autumn, a new chapter begins in the study of the arts in Iceland, when the Iceland Academy of the Arts offers a Master Programme in the arts, in three programmes. These are two-year Degrees in Design, Fine Arts and Composition. These programmes provide an opportunity to enhance artistic talent and deepen knowledge in a fertile academic environment at the Academy of the Arts.
