We love knowledge.
Knowledge is our art. 

From the history of the Faculty

Our graduates

Kateřina Tučková

“Even such dreams as becoming a successful writer can be fulfilled. I chose my courses according to my heart, because those were already my favourite subjects at grammar school. Studying art made me think about the details, about how everything matters, and about the fact that beauty lies in the details. Studying literature made me think in a wider context — both historically and individually.”

Kateřina Tučková
writer and curator, winner of the Magnesia Litera Award for her book ‘The Goddesses of Žítková’

Stanislav Gálik

“I think that it has never been more important to study humanities than now. The technological growth got overwhelmingly ahead of the growth of the quality of society and individual qualities. The result is that we have high technology, but people still cannot communicate. We can fly to Mars, but one culture shoots at another one.”

We have modern facilities for research and study

CARLA – Support centre in humanities

In 2015, an extensive renovation and reconstruction of state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities for humanities and social sciences was completed in the Faculty area on the street of Arna Nováka, No. 1.

The buildings were designed by architect Petr Pelčák who combined modern functionalist effectiveness with historical decorations in the form of classical sculpture castings.


The study site is an architectural gem

Central Library of the Faculty of Arts

The four-storey building of the Central Library of the Faculty of Arts, designed by the architects Ladislav Kuba and Tomáš Pilař, won the main prize in the Czech Society of Architects Grand Prix in 2002.

The construction made it possible to increase the number of books in circulation from 2000 to 120,000 and the number of study places from 40 to 400; it has significantly contributed to the improvement of other library services as well.
