A unique interdisciplinary graduate program at the Taipei National University of the Arts (TNUA). It spans a wide range of courses in the arts and related cultural practices, addressing them from international and local perspectives. Its curriculum incorporates a variety of resources from across the university, as well as the cosmopolitan city of Taipei, where the best of the arts comes together all year round.
Founded in 2011, International MA Program in Studies of Arts and Creative Industries (SAC), formerly known as The International Master of Arts Program in Cultural and Creative Industries (IMCCI), is the only English-taught program in Taipei offering full scholarship within the context of a comprehensive arts university, boasting international faculty and state-of-the-art facilities. Our diverse and professional instructors offer seminars and workshops on the latest concepts and practical experience in the field in order to prepare students for a career in the arts. The program conducts two majors, “Cultural and Creative Industries” and “Interdisciplinary Arts,” with students being grouped accordingly.
Taipei National University of the Arts is one of the leading contemporary arts institutions in Asia. Unlike other institutions that keep the performing and visual arts separate, you’ll benefit from the collaboration that occurs in this truly interdisciplinary program. While SAC belongs to the School of Cultural Resources, you’ll have opportunities to take elective courses across the university, with access to TNUA’s seven Schools: Music, Fine Arts, Theatre Arts, Dance, Film and New Media, Cultural Resources, and Humanities. You’ll also be able to participate in the “Shared Campus” program, a cooperation platform for international education formats and research networks launched by seven arts institutions in Hong Kong, Singapore, Kyoto, Lon-don, and Zurich.
Our program is specifically designed for the arts and culture sector, providing research training in contemporary arts and performance, and equipping students with art management strategies for art industries worldwide. The Program is built around 3 key areas: Arts and Humanities Core Theories, Arts and Contemporary Issues, and their application in Knowledge of International Business Management theories and practice. Using a variety of critical frameworks, you’ll investigate contemporary visual and performing arts in both Taiwanese and international contexts, and engage with such pertinent topics as global Indigeneity, the Anthropocene, and the relationship between art and social engagement. We also provide applicative learning opportunities in subjects ranging from curatorial practice to arts management.
