Storytelling, 120 credits
No admission to this course for the academic year 2014/15.
Konstfack's four new Master's Programmes started in autumn 2014. The programmes lead to a Master's Degree (120 credits).
Today visual communication faces a number of challenges: technological, theoretical, visual and contextual. Storytelling offers a venue for practical and theoretical exploration of the subject area.
The Master's Group is intended for those who have previous experience of visual narrative. The aim is to provide you with the prerequisites needed to extend your own artistic context and to formulate your professional role in relation to the surrounding community.
We place great weight on rendering the relationship between form, content and context visible. The Master's Group is imbued by critical and reflective discussion about visual communication in general and your own work in particular. The inclusion of a perspective in which norms are challenged in both practical and theoretical studies makes Storytelling a unique education in this area.
The different narrative profiles are reflected by the fact that many courses are optional. The final semester is devoted to the degree project, corresponding to 30 credits.
The admission process places great weight on critical thinking as well as practical skills in graphic design and/or visual narrative and/or illustration and/or moving media and/or other related media. You should be familiar with the most frequently used software for image processing and layout. Knowledge of typography, web design, video editing and animation is desirable.
You can apply to the Master's Group Storytelling, if you have an approved Bachelor's degree from a university in Sweden or abroad, or the equivalent education in the field. Documented proficiency in English. Read more about requirements and selection here.
Selection is made on artistic grounds and is based upon a portfolio of artwork, a statement of intent and interview. Read more about requirements and selection here.
