Guided by this principle, the degree programs aim to train highly competent research, design and performance oriented artists having a deep understanding of basic concepts, modern design and performance methods. The international and multidisciplinary composition of the academic staff allows the provision of interdisciplinary programs, as well as particular courses of study to meet individual educational needs.
