Visual Arts

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

Visual arts courses often cover skills in aesthetic arts. However, there are many applied art forms included in visual arts courses. These programs can cover graphic design, fashion design, decorative art and industrial design. These can help students prepare for a position in a particular field.  

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
