Master of Culture and Arts, Degree Programme in Cultural Entrepreneurship (visual arts)

During the academic year 2011-2012, the focus is on jewellery art. The degree programme provides students with an equal qualification for public posts and appointments as a second cycle university degree.

The duration of studies is one to two years, and teaching will take place from September 2011 till December 2012.

Profound studies of jewellery art


The Master of Culture Arts is a working life oriented second cycle UAS degree which aims to expand and deepen the students' professional competence in jewellery art and to improve their skills in practicing the artist's profession (the context and marketing of art).

In the master's degree programme, the students improve their skills and theoretical competence as artists and study in depth the operational principles and practices of jewellery art.

Entrepreneurship combined with jewellery art
The teaching is organised as multiform teaching primarily in the Rantapaja facility of Saimaa University of Applied Sciences in Lappeenranta. The studies are both theory and practice-oriented and the students' artistic
development will be supported by a Finnish as well as an international tutor.

Content-based issues combined with various techniques and materials are important elements in the learning process. The theoretical studies take place in groups. During them, the students will be instructed on the
research between art and crafts, design and art. The aim is to seek support for content-related issues in jewellery art. It is possible to work on and/or combine jewellery with a wider world of visual arts.

The studies will also provide good opportunities to combine traditional jewellery techniques with experimentation and modern 3D know-how. The studies progress through a working process towards a final thesis, which will be presented alone and/or in a group, both in Finland and, whenever possible, abroad.

An important focus of the Degree Programme in Cultural Entrepreneurship is to apply operational models of financial and business competence to the work of being a jewellery artist.

International cultural exports

The Degree Programme in Cultural Entrepreneurship emphasises internationality. The studies include organisation of KORU4 event in November 2012. Networking of students is also supported by an opportunity to cooperate in a project of international jewellery art educational institutions. Moreover, studies in jewellery art offer good opportunities for student exchange.
