Description

The University of Art is an accredited institution devoted solely to the arts fields, and is unique in this regard in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Governed by the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology (formerly Culture and Higher Education), it was formed by reorganizing five formerly independent institutions into a single entity after the Islamic Revolution. These were: 

  • the Conservatory of Music, founded in 1918
  • the College of National Music, founded in 1949;
  • the College of Decorative Arts, founded in 1960;
  • the College of Dramatic Arts, founded in 1964; and
  • Farabi University, founded in 1975.

The Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution approved the reorganization in 1980, and the new institution was named the University of Art in 1991.

Today, the University is comprised of five colleges offering fourteen undergraduate and twelve masterís level courses of study and a doctoral programme in art studies. It serves 1,800 undergraduate and 500 postgraduate students, about 500 graduating each year; it is served by 82 full-time and more than 170 part-time faculty members from among established artists and specialists in the country.
