Ars una, species mille.

Degree programme objectives

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.

  • Objectives

    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.

  • Learning Outcomes

    After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:

    • be knowledgeable in the history and contemporary state of music, arts, theatre and film
    • reflect these fields in the broader context of the development of culture
    • encompass key aspects of music, arts, theatre and film in various periods of time
    • describe socially and historically conditioned types of understanding of the arts (interpretation of them)
    • work in different fields of culture
  • Occupational Profiles of Graduates

    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.

  • Practical Training

    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.

  • Goals of Theses

    The required bachelor's thesis includes at least 70,000 characters, including spaces. The scope of the thesis includes the complete text, notes, attachments, lists, etc. The thesis is to be based on original research and thus on the study of archival and other sources, including primary literature, and/or on the study and re-interpretation of secondary literature. The structure of the work depends on the contexts which follow the chosen topic.

    Concerning the specialisation in the subject, students may present topics relating to individual disciplines (history of music, fine arts, theatre and film), as well as interdisciplinary themes or topics based on theoretical considerations. Applying theories to the interpretation of specific artistic works is vital. Another group of topics deals with current events in culture and art, its organisational and sociological aspects, etc., thus anticipating the focus of one of the follow-up Master's programs, Management in Culture.

    Rules for writing theses and the bibliographic citation standard of the Department of Musicology, Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University are available at http://music.phil.muni.cz/media/3005217/pravidla.pdf.
