Fine Arts and Art Management
The aim of the doctoral study program is to enable highly specialized artistic and scientific education for graduates of FAVU (and other arts colleges and faculties), but also for graduates of non-artistic fields focusing on contemporary art in its various aspects (curatorial, gallery, cultural, Criticism and history of contemporary art). This high degree of specialization of admitted applicants assumes that the study is highly individualized - trainers and expert consultants help students primarily by feedback and direction to desirable problems, resources, institutions and people - and still contain the foundation consisting of subjects whose completion is obligatory for all students in program. While graduates of art disciplines are thus led to further deepen knowledge in the fields of art theory or contemporary art, graduates of non-artistic disciplines gain a deeper insight into artistic research, or current art practice, respectively.
Key learning outcomes
The aim of doctoral studies at FAVU is to contribute to the development of contemporary art as a cultural and socially significant area of action and knowledge. Doctoral study is a unique space for the cultivation of individual but discourse-based attitudes. Doctoral study is thus primarily an area of freedom to develop its own disposition in dialogue with inspirational colleagues and consultants, but also students of lower degrees of study with whom the doctoral students come into contact within their own pedagogical practice. An important goal of the doctoral study program is also the preparation of future teachers of higher art schools. During the course of study, emphasis is placed on pedagogical practice, which may take the form of pedagogical assistance to the trainer, including assistance with conducting or opposing work, but may also consist of leading separate lectures and seminars (ideally linked to the subject of doctoral studies).
Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

The opportunity to interrelate scientific and creative research methods oriented either towards a body of artistic work or an exhibition projects, provides them with the best qualities for finding their place both in the art world or in academic environment.
