Doctoral programme Doctor of Philosophy-PhD Programme Science and Arts

The Interuniversity Doctoral Program in Science and Art is offered jointly by the University of Mozarteum Salzburg and the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg and comprises 6 semesters. The course is aimed at those who have a scientific education as well as have competencies in the field of artistic and cultural production. The completion of the study is the acceptance of a dissertation and the completion of a disputation in the form of a commission examination.
The content, structure and extent of the six-semester course are oriented towards the Bergen Communiqué concluded in the context of the Bologna Process (2005) as well as towards the Recommendations by the Austrian University Conference on New Guidelines for Doctoral Studies.  The entire extent of the course amounts to 180 ECTS credits.
Graduates of this course are awarded the academic degree Doctor of Philosophy  (PhD).
The subject area of the doctoral program is, in principle, located at the interface between science and art and is intended to contribute to the integration of knowledge in both areas. The interdisciplinary doctoral program imparts and promotes theoretical understanding and methodical competences at a postgraduate level between and with the various disciplines, but especially between theory and practice of the arts and cultural production.
Admission to the doctorate program calls into question the completion of a Diploma or master's degree at a university or college of higher education or equivalent at a recognized postsecondary education institution. In any case, qualifications in the studies offered at the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg as well as at the University Mozarteum in Salzburg are considered to be relevant.
