MAS Project

After the completion of all three CAS, your MAS Project will focus on a practical and/or theoretical problem, task, or experiment relevant to a professional field. After your successful completion of the MAS Project you will be awarded a Master of Advanced Studies in Art & Society.

The MAS Project is a piece of discursive work and may include practical parts. Its topic should be related to a subject addressed in the MAS Art & Society. Participants choose their topic in consultation with the MAS Art & Society directors and are supervised by suitably qualified mentors.

Types of MAS Projects

  • Practice based research

  • Experiments relevant to the area of study (including practical and theoretical parts)

  • Defining a newly designed project

  • Documenting an existing project

The MAS Project tests the participant’s ability to

  • Define a research question or task – either theoretical or practical – relevant to the professional field and real-life contexts

  • Expound problems, possibilities, and solutions

  • Work independently on a topic relevant to course contents

  • Address the issue(s) in a context-sensitive manner

  • Build upon existing methodologies, theories, and practical knowledge

The MAS Project is both a learning activity and an opportunity for participants to demonstrate their learnings.
