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.
