Master of Design and Crafts

Estonian Academy of Arts
Campus 2 years August 2017 Estonia Tallinn

The Estonian Academy of Arts offers a Master's programme in Design and Crafts, delivered in English.

[+]

Top Part time Masters in Estonia. The two-year Design & Crafts MA programme prepares students for professional practice and helps them identify their own positions as artists — within their communities, society, design field, global economy, natural environment and other contexts. The programme provides students with as many real-world, hands-on situations as possible by giving them access to practising professionals and diverse opportunities. The programme also develops and changes with the students. With each new group, we start with roundtable discussions to find out what our students actually want. What experiences do they value? What is the focus of their interests? What are their professional dreams? The students enter a common programme but also select a specialisation. Students who study in the Design & Crafts programme remain closely connected with their chosen discipline. Regardless of the specialisation, the MA programme focuses on collaboration. This includes group tasks that cross disciplines, so that students with different backgrounds and study experience work together. A significant part of the coursework takes place in the form of workshops (supervised by international lecturers), which aim to break routine and provide inspiration. Design & Crafts specialisations: ceramics glass art and design jewellery and blacksmithing textile design leather art and design fashion design Material-based design and craft disciplines have a unique outlook and philosophy, and the Estonian Academy of Arts is one the few places in the world where it is possible to study in some of these fields at the MA level.

Master of Interaction Design

Estonian Academy of Arts
Campus 2 years August 2017 Estonia Tallinn

The MA in Interaction Design programme focuses on human-centered design. The ongoing evolution of smart consumer technology has increased the need for well-designed intuitive user interfaces and experiences. [+]

Interaction Design (IxD) is a rapidly developing creative field. The ongoing evolution of smart consumer technology has increased the need for well-designed intuitive user interfaces and experiences. Be it a mobile app, the front-end of a web-based service or a complex system involving different digital and physical experiences, interaction design is an essential part of it. Interaction designers aim to make users’ encounters with sophisticated information and machinery as simple and pleasant as possible. Our program focuses on human-centered design. User research, analysis and testing form the foundation of the curriculum. Theoretical studies are built around practical design projects based on real briefs by companies from Estonia and abroad. User-based, agile design and product/service development methods ensure the sound outcome of the projects. The cooperation of our Master’s programme with the department of Graphic Design lends a solid focus to the skills and tools of graphic user interface design — data visualisation, digital typography, visual design, motion graphics, GUI prototyping, etc. Cooperation with the departments of Product Design, Interior Architecture and the programme of Design & Engineering expands the scope of the curriculum to tangible interaction and interactive spaces. Physical computing, wearable tech and virtual reality are covered by study projects. Graduates of the Interaction Design Master’s programme will be well equipped to run complex product/service development projects and to manage international multi-disciplinary teams. We expect our students to represent a wide variety of backgrounds. Previous experience in design and software development is helpful, but by no means necessary. During... [-]

Master of Interior Architecture

Estonian Academy of Arts
Campus 2 years August 2017 Estonia Tallinn

We educate future interior architects. The programme provides the skills to analyse critically, develop and experiment with the different aspects of spatial environment creation and helps to develop a personal, creative approach. [+]

Top Part time Masters in Estonia. The contemporary world is characterised by complexity and rapid change, affecting also the profession of interior architects and spatial designers. The Master's programme in Interior Architecture is based on the principle that a set of design skills, in the narrow sense of the term, is not sufficient for interior architects to be successful in their profession. They also need to understand the broader context and be able to adjust their solutions to changing situations. Our curriculum is divided in two main segments: The first (so-called ‘hi-tech’) segment deals with the interaction between spaces and people, and the ways high technology and smart materials help improve that interaction. The second (so-called ‘low-tech’) segment is based on the notion that if we have good knowledge of our surrounding, broader contexts (such as climate, nature, economy and culture) and their interrelationship, rich imagination and primitive materials are all we need to create fresh, quality spaces. During the first academic year, students participate equally in both segments. The second academic year is dedicated to the Master’s project. For that, students will select one of the two segments — whichever better supports the topic of their project. The overall objective of the Master's curriculum is to prepare an independent creative person who is able to create personalised three-dimensional environments, combining architecture, design, art and technology into a coherent whole and lead the implementation of their spatial design projects. The curriculum provides the skills to analyse critically, develop and experiment... [-]

Master in Urban Studies

Estonian Academy of Arts
Campus 2 years August 2017 Estonia Tallinn

The program is situated at the trans-disciplinary crossroad of architecture, urban planning and design, art history and theory, critical geography, sociology, ethnography, and related disciplines. [+]

As events and transformations of the recent decades have forcefully shown, the urban question permeates all major social, economic and political developments of today. The two-year Master’s programme in Urban Studies critically engages with the wide-ranging manifestation of contemporary urbanity. What shapes have the processes of urbanisation assumed today? How are urban spaces produced? The programme foregrounds the unitary perspective of the city as a physical space, a social space and a space of design. It combines rigorous academic research with intensive fieldwork. The programme is situated at the trans-disciplinary crossroad of urban studies, urbanism and urban planning, architecture theory, sociology, urban ethnography and geography. Our students have academic backgrounds in architecture, social sciences or humanities. Integrating critical interrogation and experimental practice, the programme has a triple focus on social uses, spatial programmes and urban forms. The form of assignments includes term-long research studios, intensive workshops, lectures, seminars and field trips. The distinctive mark of the Urban Studies programme is its reliance on theoretically-informed action in the field. We take students’ efforts seriously: the programme engages ‘real’ actors and create opportunities for public presentation, discussion and publication of the best works. The Master’s programme is fully in English and has a strong international orientation. We cooperate with a network of partner institutions in Europe, and we are connected to regional partners in Finland, the Baltic countries and Russia.

Master in Animation

Estonian Academy of Arts
Campus 2 years August 2017 Estonia Tallinn

Estonian Academy of Arts is offering a 2-year Master of Animation programme to postgraduate students interested in animation directing and filmmaking. [+]

Top Part time Masters in Estonia. The Department of Animation was established at the Estonian Academy of Arts in 2006 and since 2007 it has offered a two-year MA in Animation (taught in English). The Animation MA programme is taught by Professor Priit Pärn and Associate Professor Olga Pärn. The main goal of the programme is to successfully educate creators of animated films, providing them with theoretical knowledge and practical skills. The further aim is to contribute to the global development of animation as an art form. Animation is a thriving medium and developing at a greater pace than ever before. It has become part of mass culture, as well as one of its principal forms. Animation can be seen in digital screen graphics, computer games, music videos, films, etc. The basis for any film – including animated film – is the story. The greatest problem in the film world is the lack of good stories. In most of the world’s animation schools, students are not taught the art of good story writing. This is something that sets our programme apart. We place an emphasis on the story and teach Professor Pärn’s unique methodology for creating film scripts. Upon completion of the MA in Animation programme, students have acquired in-depth theoretical and practical animation skills. The students can specialise in specific animation techniques and create individual projects in the appropriate technique. After graduation, the students are qualified to realise themselves as animated film creators, professionals in creative industries or teachers... [-]
