  • Pravidla a podmínky pro vytváření studijních plánů

    Bakalářské a magisterské studium probíhá podle celouniverzitního kreditního systému, který je v souladu s pravidly European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Povinně volitelné předměty jsou ve studijním plánu organizovány do jedné čí více skupin; student volí povinně volitelné předměty na základě stanoveného minimálního počtu kreditů v každé skupině.

    Na Masarykově univerzitě došlo k celouniverzitnímu konsensu na pravidlech pro tvorbu studijních programů, které zpřesňují pravidla vymezená v metodice Národního akreditačního úřadu Doporučené postupy pro přípravu studijních programů. Pravidla pro tvorbu studijních programů byla schválena ve stejnojmenné směrnici MU (Směrnice MU č. 11/2017: Pravidla pro tvorbu studijních programů) a vymezují šest typů studijních plánů a jejich použití a kombinace v jednotlivých typech studijních programů. Jedná se o 

    1. jednooborový studijní plán,
    2. studijní plán se specializací,
    3. hlavní studijní plán (maior),
    4. vedlejší studijní plán (minor),
    5. studium podle dvou hlavních studijních plánů,
    6. plán na dostudování (určen pouze studentům z obdobného studijního oboru, kterému zaniká akreditace).

    Premisou pravidel je, že studijní plány umožňují naplnění cílů studia a dosažení profilu absolventa studijního programu. Výjimkou je pouze vedlejší studijní plán, který slouží jako komplementární doplněk hlavního studijního plánu jiného studijního programu. Student nemůže studovat pouze podle vedlejšího studijního plánu.

  • Praxe

    Special focus on practical know-how, both academic and non-academic, will be an integrative part of the master’s programme. As part of their curriculum, students will be doing a – a semester long – mandatory traineeship in a cultural or scholarly institution. These can be ranging from outstanding museal poles (with all possible jobs related), international research institutes, cultural foundations, or editing houses. As such, the practical training will be related deeply to the type of institution chosen for the internship, proposing a broad range of possibilities. Furthermore, during the collective work on a research project, part of the curriculum, students will be introduced to the practical aspects of scholarly work, going through all the steps of the intellectual elaboration throughout the publication of an original scientific project.

  • Cíle kvalifikačních prací

    The master thesis is the occasion for students to be confronted with a very specific topic within his/her field, and to put to practice his/her acquired skills in heuristic research, in independent scholarly writing, in communication with a network of institutions and/or individual scholars, as well as to contextualise, within the historiography of the subject an within an up-to-date panorama of scholarly perspectives, his/her object of study. The thesis should fulfil all the criteria of a publishable scholarly achievement and can in ideal cases lead to an actual scholarly publication.

  • Návaznost na další studijní programy

    Students trained within the master’s programme will present a highly competitive profile for applying to a Ph.D. programme at a Czech university, abroad, or in co-tutoring between a Czech and foreign university. The training in intellectual independency, know-how of visual cultures, but also their practical knowledge and the multidisciplinary approach promoted by the programme will allow the conception of an enticing Ph.D. project, already suited for international competitive contexts. The preparation, as part of the programme, of a publishable scholarly article as well as the first connexions established with a professional international network will enhance the possibilities of future Ph.D. candidates. Students trained in this master’s programme are also ideal candidates for further studies in the adjacent fields of the milieus related to visual studies, media, art history, and mediation of culture.
