Graduate Program in Stuttgart (Germany) now accepting applications

The Stuttgart Academy of Fine Arts is now accepting applications for
its new international Master-Degree program "Conservation of New
Media and Digital Information (M.A.)" Application deadline is June
30, 2006. Classes will begin in the winter term 2006 (October 16).

This two-year program will provide a graduate qualification (Master

will open new perspectives regarding the long-term preservation of
modern cultural heritage, like photographs, video records, and
digital information as forms of fine art, and archival and library

The program is targeted towards professionals with a university
degree (B.A. or equivalent) in museum, archive or library science,
computer science, art history, media science, museology,
conservation or similar. The curriculum's structure and content was
chosen to enable a heterogeneous group of students with different
preliminary knowledge to acquire the necessary technological and
theoretical knowledge, and to support special individual interest.
It focuses on a balance between theory- and application-oriented
skills. All modules are rated according to the European Credit
Transfer System (ECTS).

Thanks to generous support from the State government, the tuition
fees could kept low at 1,500 Euros per semester. The faculty will be
internationally known specialists from major research institutions,
archives, libraries, universities and the industry. Class language
will be English and German.
