Aesthetics and Cultural Studies
"Structures of the Beautiful in Art, Virtue and Goodness in Culture"
Degree programme specification
Study of Aesthetics and culture offers to students a way of understanding of various forms of art at present, in history, in its social or philosophical contexts. Unlike other art sciences Aesthetics introduces art as social or philosophical phenomenon naturally connected with actual or local circumstances but expresses timeless values at the same time. That is why study of Aesthetics is set culturally and historically on the one hand and analytically in courses of history of Aesthetics, terminology, methodology or European culture on the other. Students are gradually able to collect pieces of branch information, evaluate them, to use proper methods in the search, to interpret critically, to discuss to the point, to discipline ourselves, to work with foreign language, to see European culture in context. The graduates are habilitated to work in galleries, cultural and social institutions, as publicists or teachers at elementary or secondary schools too.
