Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design
The Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design (KMD) offers BA, MA and PhD programmes based on an internationally recognised level of artistic research.
We educate future artists, designers, performing musicians, composers, music therapists, musicologists, curators, and music and art teachers. The faculty consists of about 700 students and 190 staff members. Academic activities are organised across three departments with a joint administration: Fine Art, Music, and Design. The departments have research fellows who are affiliated with one of UiB's PhD programmes - either the new artistic programme or the scientific. The academic staff at the departments of Fine Art and Design share the same facilities in a new building especially designed by the Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta. Currently, the university is in the planning phase to establish a separate building for The Grieg Academy – Department of Music on a neighbouring site at Møllendal. KMD cooperates with many leading institutions on the local, national and international level.
