The Herzen University Institute of Art Education dates back to 1959. From its very inception, the Faculty has cherished the traditions of academic education while staying abreast of the latest innovations.

Today our graduates embark on a wide range of creative careers from fine arts and graphic design to commercial web design and advertising. They are successful artists and talented teachers, unconventional designers and simply people who have a good grasp of what fine art is all about. They work in advertising agencies, design studios, mass media editorial offices and educational institutions.

One of the leaders of university education in culture and art, our faculty is very much in demand among international students.

And one more fact: In recent years our graduates have achieved such a high degree of artistic excellence that their works have appeared in several exhibitions hosted by the State Russian Museum in St Petersburg.
