English bachelors Programmes.

Preparing you for your future


as a creative professional
At our Academy your individual, creative development in
your chosen field is important. We will do everything to
encourage your growth and guide your talent. In addition
you also need to be prepared well in terms of professional
practice. That is why at our Academy you will be able to
extend your perspective beyond your own work. We use
various approaches to help you to do this. Your lecturers
are experienced professionals themselves with their own
professional practice as artists, designers or academics. As
a fundamental part of the study programme the Academy
organises many activities aimed at the professional
practice, such as project weeks with guest lecturers, reading
programmes, study days, exhibitions and excursions.

The international perspective


Getting to know the international perspective is important
for your future as an artist or designer. You are obviously well
aware of this fact. Studying at Minerva Art Academy doesnt
mean you will be confined to the Dutch perspective. On
the contrary. Our programmes have a significant focus on
international art. Lectures will frequently explore the work of
international artists and we often invite guest lecturers from
abroad. Students and teaching staff take part in study trips
and excursions both domestic and abroad.

Project Offices
The bachelors programmes start with an international
excursion, with all students from the Design, Fine Arts and
education programmes, to for example Paris, Berlin or the
Documenta in Kassel. We maintain exchange programmes
with various art academies and universities in Europe, the
United States and Asia, offering our students the chance
to enjoy the unforgettable experience of studying abroad.
Something you will hopefully experience by coming here.

Our range of programmes


Minerva Art Academy has a long history in arts education
dating back to 1798 when the school for Drawing, Building
and Maritime Studies was founded. Over the subsequent two
centuries the Academy has developed into a modern, critical
and flexible arts institution. Today we offer a broad range of
programmes, bachelors and masters. These are:

Minerva Art Academy

Minerva Art Academy believes it is important for you


to test your work in practice. Can you detect the relationship
between art and design and its environment? Is your client
truly satisfied with the design? How does the public respond
to your work?
The Project Office/AMP for art and design and the Project
Office Pop Culture offer you the opportunity to work on
commissions or projects in a (semi-)professional setting.
Our teachers and advisors hand out assignments drawn from
fine arts, graphic design, photography, interior design, music
and time-based media. You will develop drafts, produce
concepts and designs and present these to the client. It is very
important that you learn to complete your assignment on
time and within budget. Throughout the project you will
work under the supervision of our coordinators at the Office
and your teacher or lecturer.

Becoming an independent visual artist

Becoming an independent artist

Preparing for your professional practice

Your ambition is to become an independent visual artist,


using your own fascination and imagination to build your
future professional art practice. You want to do so abroad,
away from home, in new and challenging surroundings. To
succeed as an independent artist you need to be talented,
skilled, ambitious and focused, but also expressive, perceptive
and disruptive. You are prepared to cross borders, take risks,
break taboos, explore new worlds and ideas. You use your
imagination to explore the world, to express and visualise
your thoughts. You do this with an open mind: you are aware
of your role and significance in society. Our aim is to help
you develop these qualities as well as your abilities as a visual
artist, enabling you to make a personal, critical and inventive
contribution to the professional field as well as to society in
general.

The Fine Arts programme at Minerva Art Academy focuses


on autonomy. Here you learn to become a free, independent
artist, getting to know all aspects of art as well as learning how
to prepare for your professional practice. You will become
familiar with the entire artistic process: from creating and
presenting to organising your work. As a modern artist you
are free to use whatever techniques and mediums you want,
including language. That is why in this programme you
will have the opportunity to learn and use a wide variety of
techniques and mediums, as well as get acquainted with all
possible artistic perspectives and positions. We encourage
you to get to know these mediums and apply them based on
substantive and conceptual choices. To express yourself you
will choose the perspective, technique and medium you need
to get your message across. Ultimately it is up to you to make
your own choices, preparing for your future profession as an
independent, professional artist.

Throughout the programme, with the emphasis in the third and


fourth year, we help you prepare your professional art practice,
teaching you about the aspects of life as a fine artist. You will learn
more about cultural policy, the world of museums and galleries,
art critics and collectors, artist initiatives and knowledge and
debate platforms. You will look outside your professional field
to learn more about your role as an artist in society. To succeed
professionally it is important for you to develop a critical view
of the cultural and social aspects of your professional practice. It
is also essential to show your work publically: to participate in
exhibitions, presentations and demonstrations and to publicise
your work, invite response and build a public base. You and your
work need to be visible to find or create your market.

Does this appeal to you? Then it is a great idea to apply for our
English Bachelor of Fine Arts.

Course structure

Our Bachelor of Fine Arts programme consists of four years,


each divided into two semesters. The core of the programme
focuses on taking a position from an art perspective, the
development of your own art work and your reflection on this.
In the first two years you will work on specific assignments
aimed at developing your abilities, skills and acquiring
knowledge of the artistic context you are entering. In the
second half of the programme you will be free to do your own
work, supervised by our teachers. In addition, you can choose
from a wide variety of technical and academic subjects and
collaborate on specific projects. You can also set up your own
projects, on your own or together with other students. In the
third year you can participate in our exchange programme and
study at an academy abroad for a semester. In the fourth year
you will write your research thesis and participate in a joint
exhibition for all exam candidates. In short: you have ample
opportunities to make your own programme.

Getting to know your craft


At our academy you will be schooled in a wide range of
subjects and techniques and of course the artistic implications
of using those. You get the chance to become skilled in
different forms of fine art like painting, photography, digital
media, installation art, or sculpture. You will acquire specific
technical knowledge, skills and various techniques as well
as discover new mediums in workshops and the electives
programme.

Broadening your academic view


Part of our curriculum is academic, aimed at broadening
your knowledge and view of the world of art, philosophy
and society. You will attend lessons about the history of art
and culture, the philosophy of art and social studies. Other
theoretical subjects include art history, the theory of art and
research skills. We also offer an interesting range of optional
theoretical modules in the third and fourth years of the
electives programme.

Finding your way


The course programme is aimed at creating fine autonomous
artists. You can create anything you wish. Anything is possible,
which means that you learn to make informed choices.
Although the course has a broad range to offer, you determine
the direction you want to take and your artistic position. You
can tailor the course by means of a range of optional classes,
initiating projects or participating in external activities, and of
course by developing your own artistic identity. You develop
your own signature.

Application
You can apply through hanze.studielink.nl. After registration
you will receive an invitation for an admission exam which
includes a home assignment and an academic assignment.
If you are unable to attend the admission exam because of
travelling distance it is possible to send in your (digital)
portfolio, your home assignment and a motivation letter.

Bachelor of Fine Arts

Final Graduation Show Design, 2014

Bachelor of Design
Graphic Design
Shaping your future as a designer
Wherever you are, design is everywhere around you.
A designer created the logo on the milk carton on your
breakfast table, the layout of the internet page you are
browsing, the movie poster in the window of your local
cinema. Are you a curious person with the talent and ambition
to become an experimental designer with an open mind? Are
you interested in working within an interdisciplinary and
global environment? At Minerva Art Academy we believe in
educating the next generation of designers. For this reason,
we welcome a multitude of cultures and nationalities at
our Groningen based academy. The English stream within
the Bachelor of Design is aimed at international and Dutch
students who wish to expand their professional scope. Does
this appeal to you? If so, you will feel right at home here,
learning to become a professional designer who solves
problems and provides visual answers to questions from
various specific contexts.

International perspective

Design is a profession without boundaries. It is important


to realise that, as designers, we are operating in a global
environment. We need to incorporate this international
perspective in our work and in the way we work. To succeed
as a designer you need to immerse yourself in an international
and multicultural environment. It is important for your
future as a professional to see what is happening around the
corner as well as to keep track of design developments in an
international context. Going abroad to visit other cities and
countries is a great first step. Coming over here to Minerva Art
Academy to enrol in our English Bachelor of Design is even
better.

Course structure
It takes four years to finish the Bachelor of Design. In the
first year we will introduce you to design in general. You
will discover and explore the design culture and your place

Bachelor of Design

in it. You will learn how to experiment and do research in


order to get to a design. From the second year through to the
fourth year the emphasis will shift gradually: your signature
as a designer will become increasingly important. In the
second year we offer the professional knowledge you need as
a designer. In the third year you will broaden and deepen this
knowledge and develop your own signature that will make
you a unique designer. During this process you will work
with other disciplines and research your own design point
of view. In the fourth year you will immerse yourself in the
professional world during a work placement period of one
semester. In the last semester you will write a final paper as
well as a thesis. You will also present your visual work, and
point of view, in a collective exhibition with all the other final
year students.

Getting to know what design is all about


The Design programme exposes you to all aspects of
professional design. Minerva Art Academy is fully equipped
to train you in these aspects. The combination of theory and
visual work, which characterises the Dutch design education,
is present during the entire course. During the programme
you will be taught and guided by a great many different
lecturers. You will work in teams as well as individually. Apart
from a set curriculum (which contains classes like graphic
design, typography, software, drawing and photography as
well as theoretical classes), you are free to choose classes in the
extensive electives programme, including technical courses in
our workshops. In addition to this we will prepare you for a
future career as a professional designer.

Gaining practical experience


Many study assignments reflect the ways in which a
designer would work in the professional world. All lecturers
combine a career in design with their work at the academy.
This guarantees a direct link between your study and the
professional field. In addition to our regular lecturers, we

often invite guests to speak on current subjects or to present


a workshop. During the fourth year you will spend one
semester working in a national or international design office.

Professional opportunities
A designers success depends on various factors. You need
talent, knowledge, technical skills, strength of imagination,
creativity, ingenuity, entrepreneurial spirit as well as a relevant
network. Your training at Minerva Art Academy will prepare
you for a future at a design office, or as an independent
designer; working freelance or starting your own company.

Application process
You can apply through hanze.studielink.nl. After applying
you will receive an invitation for an admission exam
(assessment) which includes a home assignment and an
academic assignment. On the day of the exam you will present
your portfolio to the assessment commission in a portfolio
assessment. The portfolio should consist of an overview of
your recent work and should contain originals (if possible).
It should also give insight into the process of your work, for
example through sketches. Besides the portfolio assessment
the exam includes an assignment on location. For candidates
who are unable to attend the admission exam, because of
traveling distance, it is possible to send in a (digital) portfolio,
the home assignment and a motivation letter by email.

Masters of Fine Arts
After successfully graduating as a Bachelor in Fine Arts or Design
you can find a job or start a career as a freelance designer. Would
you like to extend your specialisation? Then you are welcome to
apply for one of our international Master of Fine Arts degrees at
the Frank Mohr Institute. We offer two masters programmes:

MFA MADtech: Artists doing strange things with technology.


This sums up our MADtech programme. To imagine,
interpret and change human interaction in a transforming
world you will use and artistically explore different
technologies. You will do so with a tinker mentality: play and
experimentation are important aspects in your development
and will have a special emphasis on the research you do.
This mentality, combined with a critical reflective attitude
and conceptual skills, will lead to unexpected perspectives,
resulting in artistic multimedia work.
MFA Painting: You wish to gain more insight into the
innovative quality of painting in a rapidly changing world.
Aware of the force of physicality and materiality of works
of art, you take a painterly approach as you conduct your
experimental research into the functioning of perception
psychology, cognition and imagination. A painting shows
you the imagination of ideas as well as how material is edited
and used. Taking a painterly and critical approach means
that you create new relationships and associations through
the use of materiality. In this way, you determine the
meaning and significance of your work in todays society by
combining ideation and materiality, transforming your ideas
into unexpected, meaningful and powerful images.

Master of Education in Arts


The Master of Education in Arts is an interdisciplinary programme
which allows art teachers to intensify their knowledge of theorys
on art and pedagogy, to underpin their vision on art education,
to enhance their professional ambition and to strengthen
their educational, innovative andresearch competences.
Theprogramme is offered as a part time two year course.
