The University of Fine Arts Münster is an institution of higher education for fine arts with the right to award doctorates and postdoctoral qualifications (“Habilitation”). Future artists and art educators of all semesters study and work together in the same classes covering such diverse fields as painting, sculpture, installation, performance, photography, film, and new media. Academic study of art history, criticism, theory and didactics completes the programme.

The principle of studio work and study across all semesters under the guidance of an artist-professor goes back to the established form of art education in traditional art academies and is fundamentally different from academic course and module systems. For the programmes of both the prospective artists and art educators we put particular emphasis on a practice-oriented education, which will provide the students with the best possible preparation for their future fields of work.

With its artistic and academic professorships and its state-of-the-art workshops, the university offers excellent conditions for studying art in a city whose close connections with contemporary art through its internationally renowned Skulptur Projekte, the regional LWL Museum for Art and Culture, the Westfälische Kunstverein and the Kunsthalle Münster are of long standing.
