Artistic Doctorate


Since 2010, the Lithuanian Music and Theatre Academy has been training doctors of art in Music and in Theatre and Cinema. The purpose of the artistic doctorate is to develop artistic researchers who combine artistic creation and research, enrich their area of art with valuable insights and new knowledge based on their artistic maturity and research skills and are involved in the publicity of art. The artistic doctorate programmes of LMTA cover music, theatre, cinema and dance studies, as well as preparation and public presentation (defence) of an artistic project. At present, LMTA’s artistic doctorate students are working on 25 artistic projects.
