Programme of Combined Art Studies is suitable for students interested in art, who prefer to acquire knowledge in multiple subjects rather than specialise in one. The study is implemented either as full-time single-subject studies and/or double-subject ones and combined single-subject studies.
Studies lead students to understand the history and basics of methodology in four main areas - in the history of music, art, theatre and film. The bases of studies are taught in two-semester chapters in the history of music, visual arts, theatre and film, history of aesthetics and sociology of art. By completing these courses, a way of understanding the broader historical and methodological context and interdisciplinary relations opens for students.
During the programme, students will attend two compulsory courses in a cultural institution in two weeks (80 hours in total) according to the offer of the lecturer, or according to their choice. This course aims to familiarise students with basic principles of the functioning of cultural institutions. The course takes place in the form of practical internships.
Thanks to the long-term cooperation with Brno museums and galleries, theatres, the Czech Television, the Czech Radio, the Brno Philharmonic, the Moravian Library and other organisations, students have the opportunity to participate in the preparation of exhibitions and accompanying events. They can take part in lecturing activities or documentation of collections in the Brno House of Arts, the Moravian Museum or the Moravian Gallery in Brno, to participate in the organisation, promotion and presentation of concerts, theatre performances and other cultural events. Within the framework of this compulsory internship, students will gain practical experience in the operation of cultural institutions from Brno and abroad, as well as valuable contacts for further study and work.
The graduates gain theoretical knowledge in many disciplines of art studies. The acquired special skills in the area of cultural studies allow finding employment particularly in culture management, advertising and public relations.
Thanks to the wide focus, the graduates can work in many areas of culture: in editorial departments of culture in various media (television, radio, newspapers and magazines, online media), art agencies, museum institutions and galleries, and libraries. They can work in the field of heritage conservation, education (although graduates do not gain teaching qualification) in the administration of projects and grants.
Students have a pre-defined list of required courses, which are supplemented with selective and elective courses. The student pays full attention to the single field of study chosen.
In this type of studies, the students focus on the main degree programme (120 credits) supplemented with another, minor, programme (60 credits). The student enrols in the degree programme in which he/she majors. Both the programmes are stated in the university diploma. You will find possible combinations on the websites of individual degree programmes. An exception is programmes preparing students for teaching professions, where both fields of study are equal and the thesis may be written in any of them.
