University Wide Art Studies UWAS

At Aalto University we believe the future of education exists at the crossroads of science, technology, business and art. University Wide Art Studies (UWAS) offers access to art-based thinking for every discipline in the university through a series of field neutral courses on creativity and culture. These classes are available as equally weighted, credited opportunities for students of all backgrounds, to engage with arts studies as part of their core coursework no matter what their major. This way our University can offer a truly transdiciplinary graduate, someone informed and educated in how art and creative practices shape and define the world around us.           

UWAS offer artistic and creative skills, and art-based thinking for every discipline in the university. “Art studies” here refers to a wide range of art, design and creative practices, as they are relevant for the various schools and disciplines of Aalto University. Being inherently transdisciplinary, UWAS courses are inclusive and available, based on artistic and design thinking, and its curriculum and pedagogy is carefully adjusted for the needs, interests and creative potential of non-art disciplines. It is required and ensured that a substantial number of students participating in every UWAS course represent all the different schools of Aalto. The courses are arranged and scheduled in ways that make participating as easy as possible, ideally integrating the courses as recognized parts of the students’ studies in their own programs.

UWAS-courses are open to all the degree students at the university, regardless of their field of study. Registration for these courses is done mainly via WebOodi (you don't need to separately apply for a study right for these courses), where one can also find more information about the courses.
