Profile

Burg Giebichenstein is a modern university of art and design combining elements of a design school, an art academy and a school of modern media. The institution is well equipped with state-ofthe-art studios and workshops for almost all technical and handcraft procedures. Students get a lot of individual attention from a highly qualified body of academic staff. The education aims at internationalization and finds its support and practical application in cooperation with partners in industry and trade and with institutions of the public and private sector. Creative young people will find a varied programme and a place where they can try out and professionalize their talents in intellectual and practical exchange.

Structure of Study Programmes

The duration of study programmes in fine arts is ten semesters. The awarded degree is a Diploma of Fine Arts. The duration of study programmes in design is four years for a Bachelor, B.A., and another year for a subsequent Master degree in the same field. Master programmes taken up in a field that deviates from the previous Bachelor programme may take up to two years. An intense artistic and design education and art theoretical elements take an important place in all programmes.
