The study programme grants the Master of Art & Design for the Public Space (MADEP) and is aimed at students trained in varied Art and/or Design courses, at this or other Faculties. The course offers alternatives for further education within a scope of research that aims to intervene in the public space in a social, political, urban or virtual approach.



The need for interaction and involvement with the public domain has been progressively affirming itself as an artistic, aesthetic and creative concern within diverse circuits of knowledge and artistic pratice. Internationally, this territory already has a considerable implementation, both at an academic level and as a profissional pratice, in Portugal the offer of a 2nd Cycle course with this profile allows for an approach that conveys operative skills and reflexive tools adequate to address said territory. Thus, on the one hand, the character of expertise of the programme of studies addresses very specific needs of the spacial intervention operativeness; on the other, its pluri and interdisciplinary roots establish from the outset a focus on developing critical and reflexive tools.

The current Masters allows further education for graduate students holding a Degree from any of the Pathways of the Art or Design Courses in this Faculty, but also for graduate students coming from areas of study such as Architecture, Urban Planning, Landscaping, Product Design. The course celebrates co-operation with other Faculties and Research Centres, namely CCRE (Centre for Spacial Representation) at the Architecture Faculty of Porto, with the aim of furthering cientific dialogue and enabling a groundwork for thinking and acting upon the city, the landscape, the community and the museum, in a multidisciplinary mode.
