Need for the Programme, Purpose and Aims

The second-cycle university level study programme of Applied Ceramics is a programme (state code 621W10008) combining art, humanities, social speciality study subjects, the purpose of which is to prepare a professional specialist of applied ceramics conforming to international standards and master’s qualification, who is able to design and realise complicated visual art and authorial design objects, possesses scientific and artistic research skills, is able to create individual artistic conceptions applying innovative problem solving methods, broaden worldview and learn independently, organise and manage work, and co-operate on the international scale, and is able to continue doctoral art studies.

Uniqueness of the Programme and Soundness of the Need of the Programme 

There is no analogous master study programme operated in Lithuania. Only the Department of Ceramics and Porcelain of VAA Kaunas Faculty and the Department of Ceramics of VAA Vilnius Faculty operate the Applied Ceramics master programme and grant the degree of Master of Fine Arts; studies in the said departments provide an exceptional opportunity for students to select second-cycle studies of ceramics and benefit from study principles applied in them: an individual plan for master studies is drawn up for each student, the topic of the profile selected is analysed and studied by placing the emphasis on close connection between the ideas and modern technologies as well as interdisciplinarity of various areas of sciences and art. Master studies of Applied Ceramics provide a wide scope of knowledge on science and art, provide experience to conduct research on science and art and carry out research work; they also cultivate the skills of practical-creative and systematic, thinking and understanding of the processes of contemporary ceramics in the global and local, science, business and socio-cultural contexts.
