ABOUT US

The Department of Art History (DAH) of the European University at St.Petersburg (EUSP) is established in cooperation with The State Hermitage Museum on July 1, 2000, to accomplish The Program of Establishing DAH financially supported by The Ford Foundation and The Open Society Institute. The Program of Establishing DAH was designed both to develop new forms of scholarship in the former Soviet Union and to open scholarly access to the tremendous resources of the Hermitage.

The uniqueness of DAH is determined by the following:

1. The training of art scholars is organized on the basis of the international art collections of the world-famous Hermitage, with involvement of experienced museum curators, researchers and conservators.

2. Tuition is oriented toward interdisciplinary and comparative approaches to the art studies, bearing in mind both visual and non-visual arts and their interaction, so that students would be familiar with various artistic "languages", would be able to master various methods and methodologies, and to see the object of their studies from a historical perspective.

DAH aims at bringing up the open-minded specialists in Art History of highest qualification who will be able to overcome the boundaries between different disciplines in the domain of Arts Studies, as well as that between different cultures of various nations and epochs and to contact with their colleagues from all over the world.

The core of the DAH curriculum follows the three-year scheme of the European University: one and a half year MA's program (capacity - 15 people) and one and a half year Candidate-of-Science (Ph.D. equivalent) program (capacity - 10 people).

Since August 2000 the enrollment in a three-year graduate program

"RussiaEurope: Interaction of Artistic Codes" is opened.
