The Visual Arts program offers students the opportunity to gain fundamental experience and skills in the diversity of contemporary art in order to pursue an individual artistic path.

In its modes of expression, the course of study is oriented towards all areas of life. The diversity of artistic positions and focal points is the starting point of the teaching. The course of study, which comprises a total of ten semesters, consists of a 2-semester basic study period and the subsequent study in the specialized classes. After passing the final examination, a final certificate of successful university artistic studies is issued, which corresponds to a Master's degree. Following the studies, particularly talented students can be appointed as master students.
