What will I learn?
The transdisciplinary doctoral programme, located at the interface of science and art, enables doctoral students to reflectively integrate the cultures of knowledge of both fields. It conveys and promotes theoretical understanding and methodological competences at a postgraduate level between theory and practice of the arts and cultural production. The aim of the doctoral programme is to provide excellent training for young academics by imparting the ability to carry out independent academic work over and above academic professional training. Graduates are able to critically analyse various positions at the intersection of science and art and are able to develop new research questions and work on them in a methodologically sound manner with the aim of making an independent contribution to scientific, curatorial and art-related research.
