MOME's multidisciplinary doctoral school is based on the coherence and interdisciplinary collaboration of the four disciplines, and is active in three design and art disciplines as well as one scientific discipline.

The articulation of the four branches of training builds on the university’s master’s degree structure and completes the trend of three-degree training from a broad spectrum of specific skills (BA) to an integrative structure of doctoral training through the summarising nature of the master’s courses. This educational philosophy is also reflected in the inter and transdisciplinary character of the thematic foci announced by the doctoral school.

In addition, in the fact that the supervisors, representing various creative/research fields, typically work in a co-consultative relationship with the various doctoral students and doctoral groups. The MOME Doctoral School is also ready to place its research and the professional fields it covers in the context of basic and applied research, development and innovation in cooperation with other national and international academic institutions, market players and social organisations.


Doctoral training is a full-time, publicly funded or subsidised training, research and reporting activity.


The PhD programme is open to students who have a Master’s degree or equivalent in design theory, or in social sciences and humanities related to the training, or in art design, technical engineering or natural sciences. The primary criterion for admission is – well-documented – scientific or professional commitment.

Art History
