Art and Research
Art is also done on the postgraduate level (which in Finland follows the Master's degree) at the Faculty of Art and Design. The doctoral dissertation included in the Doctor of Arts degree may take the form of, among other things, an exhibition, product development project, educational project or production concept. These projects are meant to produce new knowledge that contributes to the body of research in a particular field, new methodological skills as well as products which fulfil high artistic requirements.
The Faculty of Art and design currently has approximately 60 active postgraduate students, a number of whose projects contain an artistic element. Of the doctoral dissertations defended at the Faculty, three have included an artistic production. On these pages we present artistic projects which have formed part of a doctorate.
