About

You will learn to respond to all manner of requests within the context of arts and graphics, relying on your ability to understand and recognize the beauty and then recreate it using a series of specific techniques and technologies.

A world of possibility to express art and creativity.

Within the RUFA academic structure, the two-year Graphic Arts degree is part of the Visual Arts Department, the branch of academic studies in RUFA that houses the interaction between the Fine Arts disciplines, creating new synergies between them.

At RUFA the new contemporary artist is born, able to express oneself through multiple Fine Art expressions whether they are graphic, painterly, transformational or technological.

Graphic Arts, beauty and technique.

The MA Graphic Arts degree was designed by RUFA to combine a high level of academic preparation with technique, culture, art, and technological knowledge, which are the basic elements of any professional preparation in Graphics and Fine Arts.

The areas in which Graphic Arts can be applied is practically infinite, and the Graphic Arts Degree aims to prepare its students to face all possible requests in the field of art and graphics, using their ability to recognize artistic esthetic and to reproduce it using specific techniques and targeted technology.

Modern technology to innovate ancient material.

Graphic Arts is a noble and formal discipline, based on ancient principles and methods. RUFA has coupled these with new technological studies that together will amplify the student’s professional horizons once they have completed their studies.

Thanks to a course of study with a wide variety of technological and critical subjects, such as photography, experimental tracing technique, and phenomenology of contemporary art, the two-year degree supplies students with a solid base in traditional and innovative methodologies.

Graphic Arts to work and to create.

Publishing, graphics, photography, communication, catalog and art book production, multimedia installation design, artistic and conceptual direction, competence in painting, sculpture, and decoration: these and many other areas are possible fields of work for the graduate of Graphic Arts at RUFA. Their profile is that of an artist and a professional, rich in talent and manual ability, able to apply their know-how to a variety of environments in the field of art, communication, and publishing.

Academy Degrees are equivalent to Master’s university degrees.
