Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts

Since 2009 EAMT has been a member of the Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts (GSCSA), a joint venture involving four universities (University of Tartu, Tallinn University, Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and Estonian Academy of Arts) and has coordinated its activities through 2009–2016. From 2016, the Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts will be coordinated by Tallinn University under the leadership of Professor Marek Tamm.

The GSCSA was established to advance the academic level of PhD programmes in studies of culture and the arts in Estonia, and to integrate institutionally and administratively separated researchers of culture.

Between 2016 and 2022 the graduate schools will follow the Institutional Development Programme for Research and Development and Higher Education Institutions (ASTRA).

At the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre, the graduate school is financed by the ASTRA project EMTASTRA, which is supported by the (European Union) European Regional Development Fund.
The financing period of the graduate school is: 01/01/2016–31/08/2022.
