The dialogue between art and science is a dynamic part of our studies, research, art and collaborations with different actors in society. The connection between science and art is strengthened by the fact that we belong to a multidisciplinary science university. This gives our students the chance to combine studies of design, tourism, marketing, economics, education and social sciences.
Our creative community in the north is a significant educator in the field of art and design, as a third of the higher educated professionals in the field in Finland have graduated from our faculty. We carry out internationally ground-breaking work in winter, environmental and community art, and create new, innovative methods for the use of service design and art education. Our diverse international networks serve as bridges to the culture, art and art education in the northern regions of Europe.
