The 3rd-cycle study programme in Art History leads to "doktorat znanosti" (PhD degree). It is implemented by the Faculty of Arts and aims to provide graduates with competences for scientific and research work in the field of art history. 



The doctoral study programme provides students with in-dept understanding of theoretical and methodological concepts and trains them to develop new knowledge independently and solve the most complex problems by applying and improving familiar solutions and discovering new ones. It also prepares them for managing the most work systems and science and research projects from a wide professional and scientific area. It also helps them develop critical reflection. 

Graduates have broad horizons and a sound knowledge of art history theory and are able to research art historical materials in-depth in a global and regional sense and thus contribute to the recognizability and cultural identity of their own environment. They are able to actively engage in research activities in all of the institutions and at all levels that require and expect such studies. 


The study programme has been accredited by the Slovenian Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (Slovenian abbreviation: NAKVIS; English abbreviation SQAA).
