About the Postgraduate Department at Finnish Academy of Fine Arts (Kuvataideakatemia)

The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts has an internationally acclaimed Department of Postgraduate Studies, with pioneering work in artistic research and postgraduate studies. The degree of a Doctorate in Fine Arts was established in 1997.

Postgraduate studies in the Academy are based on artistic research where high-quality artistic work intertwines with threoretical research. Doctoral students are experts in their own field, internationally renowned visual artists who apply research methods to their work.

The aim of the postgraduate studies is to give the students a profound understanding of their own field and the ability to produce high-quality artistic work that demonstrates their artistic maturity as well as to engage the students in independent, innovative artistic research in the field of their choice. The primary results of artistic research are artistic productions presented publicly. As another important result of their research, postgraduate students produce reflective and theoretical information about their own art works, the process of making and presenting them.
