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 graduates of the doctoral study branch "Fine Arts and Artistic Operation" are distinguished personalities of the art world (artists, critics, historians or art theorists, curators and cultural producers, etc.). Being able to combine scientific and creative methods, an artistic artifact or a practice-oriented exhibition project during their studies gives them the best prerequisites for applying both in contemporary art and academia.
