It is a one-year programme for students already holding a master’s degree co-organized by University College Ghent, S.M.A.K. Museum of Contemporary Art in Ghent and Ghent University. This ensures a combination of theoretical training, through lectures and discussion seminars, and practical experience with study trips and projects.
Visiting lecturers active in the world of contemporary art share their practical experience. The programme is thoroughly embedded in the local cultural arena, making it possible to closely follow developments in exhibitions and collection management. Networking, autonomy and a broad general knowledge, all crucial competencies acquired in the programme, will prove their importance. Internships and encounters with numerous international experts serve to put developments under consideration in an international perspective.
