MaHKU is the Master programme of the Utrecht Graduate School of Visual Art and Design (part of HKU University of the Arts Utrecht).

MaHKU offers a one-year, English language Master of Arts program in Fine Art. The program consists of seminars, workshops, studios, and tutorials where artists, architects, curators, designers, and various theorists share their knowledge, creativity, and professional insights with MaHKU students.

STUDY PROGRAM 
The MaHKU MA Fine Art program departs from the studentís individual project proposal that is part of the application procedure for the Master program. Through various components of the program such as critical studies, research studies, studio practice, spatial practice, media theory, and curatorial studies, students are incited further to realize and contextualize their own projects. The year is concluded by a curated exhibition and a research report.
