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 600 students and 130 employees, of which approx. 130 are academics. Academic activities are organised across three departments with a joint administration: Fine Art, Music, and Design. Each department has research fellows affiliated with both the Artistic Research Programme and other PhD programmes at the University of Bergen (UiB). UiB is also working to establish a new artistic PhD programme to further reinforce the faculty’s breadth and scope.
