Mestrado taking place in partnership with the Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa.
Master of Glass and Ceramics Art and Science (MGCAS)
The master’s program presents a unique program that brings together experts from various disciplines and offers a window into the world of glass and ceramics in a truly comprehensive way. Moving freely between Art and Science, the Master addresses these materials, not only as artistic means through which students develop practical skills of creation, but also as decoders for a deeper understanding of scientific knowledge, promoting research in chemistry, conservation and restoration, materials science, history and more. The program receives students from all over the world with different backgrounds including Art, Design, Architecture, Science and Engineering, among others.
The master’s degree is part of the Glass and Ceramics Research Unit for the Arts, VICARTE, with practical classes at NOVASCHOOL OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY of NOVA University of Lisbon (FCT-NOVA) and at the FACULTY OF FINE ARTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LISBON (FBAUL). We work on it to guarantee a valuable and vast experience of international renown.
In a world of rapid technological change, globalization and market forces, we often lose the value of creativity. The development of critical minds and dexterous hands are a hallmark of great civilizations throughout history, in which glass and ceramics have been materials through which we witness the continuous struggles and successes of human effort. Whether we look at lenses and medical devices, a simple cup of tea or a porcelain dragon carved for an emperor, we find that glass and ceramics played central roles in the development of human culture and technology, asserting themselves today in creativity individual, with harmonized practices of solid scientific and historical knowledge.
Through practice, we work to guide our students by boosting creativity in glass and ceramics, supporting the development of self-awareness, as well as participants in the social fabric in constant development.
Through our program, students acquire a diverse set of skills and experience in glass and ceramics that allows them to pursue different careers, such as professional artists, designers or industry consultants, giving space also to continue their activity in teaching and research scientific.
We look for students with an interest in their personal development, critical spirit and creativity. The program receives students from all over the world with different preparations, including Art, Design, Architecture, Science and Engineering, among others. We’re looking for you.
