The Faculty of Visual Arts of the Mediterranean University was founded in 2006 and it is the first private faculty in the field of art in Montenegro. The Faculty is licensed by the Ministry of Education of Montenegro and since its foundation it has successfully passed the process of re-accreditation of the study programs in accordance with national regulations twice (2008 and 2013). The quality of our syllabus is also supported by the fact that the Government of Montenegro has recognized both of the study programs at the Faculty of Visual Arts as programs of public interest. In 2014 the Faculty was evaluated highly by the European University Association (EUA), which carried out the process of External Institutional Evaluation.
The Faculty of Visual Arts is a place of artistic competition in two fields of creative industries: design of visual communication and audiovisual production. During the two cycle of studies (undergraduate / BA and postgraduate / Spec Art + MA) students have the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills in the field of classical and contemporary art disciplines. Curricula and programs that actually represent the symbiosis of art, science, IT technology and other scientific and artistic disciplines, are aligned with the most modern international trends as well as the needs of the contemporary labor market.
Our students graduate with a representative portfolio which opens the door to the professions in creative industries. Thanks to our internationally recognized diplomas, our students are also perfecting themselves abroad (Britain, Italy, France, Germany, USA, etc.) Additionally, students get to use international mobility courses during the studies, while bilateral exchange via Erasmus+ network has been available since 2016. It covers full scholarship and the cost of travel.
Our third-year students Anastasija Višnjić and Aleksandar Perišić spent five months at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia, within the Erasmus+KA107 program. Student Vladan Đurišić went to the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland, while students Davor Golubović and Stefan Vukčević are also going to stay in Bratislava, in the academic year 2017/2018.
The Faculty of Visual Arts is the first faculty in Montenegro with the implemented policy of the so-called learning outcomes of the European educational space, the first faculty in Montenegro that introduced the concept of service learning in curricula, as well as the initiator of the first professional higher education qualification in the field of art – land art artist.
