The College of Fine Arts
The College of Fine Arts, today one of the four pillars of the Berlin University of the Arts, looks back on a history spanning over 300 years.
Priority task is the training of artists and art teachers. Approx. 550 students study at the four institutes (Art, Aesthetic Education and Civilisation Studies, Arts Studies and Aesthetics, and – specially for postgraduate and complementary studies – the Institute of Art in Context).
In the main building of the Berlin University of the Arts there are classrooms and various workshops as well as the studios of the specialist classes – among others, for painting techniques, wood, metal, printmaking, textiles, photographic processing and the computer workshop.
The College has the right to confer doctorates. Numerous projects analyse research and professional practice as well as aspects of aesthetic education. There are lively exchanges with other universities within national and international networks.
