Glass and Ceramic Art and Science
Both ceramic and glass share several essential raw materials and also the similarity of some manufacture processes and mechanical properties of the final products. This affinity and the advantage of working in common territories led to the creation of the VICARTE - Glass and Ceramic for the Arts (www.vicarte.org), a transdisciplinary research unit, exploring the intersection between Art and Science and allowing the promotion and sharing of knowledge and methodologies between these two fields.
The Master''s Degree in Glass and Ceramic Art and Science (MACVC), is a modification of the previous Master''s Degree in Glass Art and Science (MACV).
The Master in Glass and Ceramic Art and Science creates an innovative program and the possibility of effective transdisciplinarity between fields related to art and science. This course aims to introduce glass and ceramics as materials to be explored for use in art. In the depth of this parallel and cross treatment, in its reflection and practice, the conditions for the emergence of new results are created. It is hoped that along this route, students will explore these relationships in the scope of authorial signalling, improve critical skills and benefit from training and streamlining communication skills and dissemination of results as an integral part of the projects being worked on.

Conditions of admittance
The following modes of evaluation are used with regard to academic qualifications:
- Evaluation based solely on an examination or completion of a final project.
- Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester excluding examination or final project. In these courses students can expect to carry out, for example, laboratory activities, mini-tests, tests, individual or group projects, seminar-related activities, any combination of which will be used to determine the final grade.
- Evaluation based obligatorily on an examination or a final project. In these courses there extists a form of evaluation similar to one of the aformentioned activities in paragraph 2 as well as a form of evaluation based on a final exam.
- Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester with the possibility of foregoing an examination or a final project.
The final Dissertation (or Project) involves a public discussion with a Jury.
