Studies in the Arts (SINTA)

About us

Art graduates come with precise questions and topics and want to further qualify themselves scientifically, graduates of universities are looking for the practical proximity to the arts. Most of them are very talented in both fields. Some bring more artistic-creative experience, others more methodical knowledge and writing routine.

The SINTA are a collaborative initiative between the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Bern (Universität Bern) and Bern University of Applied Sciences, Department Bern University of the Arts (HKB). We offer a interdisciplinary doctoral program aimed at both research-based artists and academics with an interest in artistic practice. The transdisciplinary doctoral program Studies in the Arts (SINTA) brings art and science together: art graduates can study for a doctorate in the joint program of the University of Bern (Universität Bern) and the Bern University of the Arts (HKB). The SINTA give both research and art new impulses as well as introducing new perspectives and research fields.
