Master class (diploma)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Master classes are organized by professional chambers (requirement: a completed apprenticeship with a journeyman's certificate) or other educational institutions such as art colleges (requirement: a completed diploma with distinction) and convey project work and, in some cases, teaching skills in the respective classes for fine art. A completed diploma with distinction usually leads to the state qualification "Meisterschüler". A diploma is traded as a Master of Art. A completed master class course is comparable to a teacher training course.

Before the master's title in the craft is awarded coupled with the Chamber of Crafts , two further examinations are usually taken at the professional chamber and guild. The academic master's degree MFA including the MFA program, which can actually be compared with the master craftsman program (initiated by the craft guild), has not yet been introduced at art universities in Germany.

Mostly or in principle, the art college students who do not have a tutorship are disadvantaged.

The master’s diploma is awarded by the chambers, at art colleges by the respective accompanying professor, who in some cases did not complete a master’s degree himself, as well as through participation in a master’s colloquium, which is led by a theoretician such as art scholar or Germanist.

The master class courses in handicrafts at chambers of crafts with guilds have a similar function to the master class courses at art colleges. After completing it, you usually receive a certificate that documents the highest degree. Master students (mostly tutors) are suggested for state scholarships to promote young artists, which speaks against equal opportunities at art universities.
