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.
