We aim to ensure that students of our institute as well as of the design institutes have an in-depth understanding of art in its social, historical and conceptual context, can play an active role in its creation, and are able to mediate it in both informal and formal (classes, critiques, papers, exhibitions) settings.

Programmes

Our graduates work at museums and galleries, design and advertising agencies, write for art magazines, are involved in teaching and research.

In addition to theoretical knowledge, graduates with an emphasis on developing business and communication skills can find jobs in design companies, cultural institutions, the art market, exhibition spaces or even the media.

The Design and Visual Arts Teacher training programme provides designers, architects and media students holding or currently pursuing an MA with pedagogical foundations and skills, as well as a new degree. State-funded semesters in teacher training are available regardless of and in addition to state-funded training periods available in other programmes, for up to 4 additional semesters.

The programme focuses on providing a deeper understanding of design, visual arts and architecture. Our graduates go on to study for various master’s degrees or work at cultural institutions and agencies.

During the semester, we aim to furnish our colleagues working in the cultural scene or intending to work in this field, with knowledge to reinvent their activities proactively and independently, along the most recent aspects and criteria of cultural management.

Hungary is also putting a great importance on improving the competitiveness of museums, on increasing visitor-friendliness, on modernizing the infrastructure and on establishing completely new public institutions. Currently, Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design is the only institution where you can study museum management in Hungary.

News

Taking a novel approach in Hungarian higher education, the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) has announced an open international call to select the institution’s next rector. The process will be unique for a number of reasons.

Our university was an international contributor to an exciting research project focusing on the practices and teaching of public art. As part of its first Erasmus+ strategic partnership project in the past three years, MOME developed a teaching methodology together with the Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) in Finland, the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in Ireland and the Estonian Academy of Arts (EKA) in Estonia to incorporate public art into European art education.

A book entitled Boundaries of human-centred design – speculative design and the post-human state by teacher of MOME’s Institute for Theoretical Studies Ákos Schneider was published by Typotex.

Events

MOME’s Open Day is back on 3 February, this time in the virtual sphere...

From 12–16 December, the first end-of-year semester of the 2022/2023 academic year will proceed for 5 days. We look forward to seeing you at these events that are also open to the public. We warmly welcome to the university’s campus all those interested in the public events of the degree programmes.

The Hungarian Cultural Anthropological Society (MAKAT), the Institute for Theoretical Studies of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME), and the Art and Design Anthropology Workshop are co-organising a conference entitled Art+Design+Anthropology.

The aim is to train open-minded designers who can respond sensitively to environmental, social and cultural processes and stand for the highest standards of quality. It seeks to enhance the competitiveness of MOME graduate designers both in the national and international arena, helping them carve out a niche in the industry for themselves.

In our vision artistic spatial design, negotiation skills and engineering knowledge form a unit that builds on each other. The Institute aims to train responsible professionals endowed with creative power, with equal weight of tradition and innovation.

Our four knowledge centres, Animation, Photography, Media Design and Graphic Design, offer BA, MA, PhD and extracurricular programmes, as well as high standards of education, an open-minded environment, and state-of-the-art technological background.
