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

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