Masters Programmes


The Estonian Academy of Arts (EAA), founded in 1914, is the only public university in Estonia offering higher education in fine arts, design, architecture, media, visual studies, art culture, cultural heritage and conservation. Located in the capital city, Tallinn, it is an active study and research institution and the leading national centre of innovation in visual culture.

Nearly 1,100 students are currently enrolled at the Estonian Academy of Arts and are taught by 89 professors, associate professors, teachers and lecturers from Estonia and abroad. Studies take place in small groups of carefully selected students, and the Estonian Academy of Arts prides itself on the low student-to-professor ratio.

Small class sizes enable a more personal, one-on-one approach. EAA offers 50 well-equipped workshops with 38 skilled technicians on hand to assist students. At EAA, students are able to hone their skills, try new mediums and above all have the freedom to experiment and pursue independent projects.

EAA offers seven Master’s programmes fully taught in English: Design & Crafts, Animation, Interaction Design, Interior ArchitectureUrban StudiesDesign & Engineering and Literature, Visual Culture and Film Studies. All programmes are two years (120 ECTS).
