About

The PhD degree is granted upon successful defense of the dissertation. Total time to complete the Visual Arts - Philosophy, Aesthetics, and Art Theory degree from Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts (IDSVA) is about five years. Tuition is charged for the three-year course of study. 

Overview

Students in the Visual Arts - Philosophy, Aesthetics, and Art Theory program from Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts (IDSVA) working on the dissertation pay a modest per-semester dissertation preparation fee.

The IDSVA course of study comprises three interrelated academic programs: Seminars, Topological Studies, and Independent Studies. Each of these programs focuses on the historical relation between art and ideas. Over the three-year course of study, the programs overlap and intersect.

Key Features 

  • Seminars serve as the backbone of the course of study through a shared language centered on the critique of Western Metaphysics.
  • Topological Studies bring together a global understanding of the trans-historical relations between art and ideas and the places in which they intersect. Residency intensives are held at Spannocchia Castle in Tuscany, the Venice Biennale, Paris, Athens, Berlin, Madrid, Mexico City, New York City, and, starting in spring 2021, Marrakech.

Programme Structure

  • The Course of Study comprises 60 credits over three years. At the end of the third year, candidates are required to pass the oral and written qualifying exams before starting the dissertation. 
  • The dissertation is typically submitted within two years following completion of the Course of Study.
