Literary Academy

Literary Academy (International ART CAMPUS Prague, s. r. o.), the only institution of its kind in Central Europe, was founded in 2000 as the first Czech private university with a full Master programme in the humanities. It offers creative and communicative training required in the flexible world of literature and the media. The tailor-made curricula are based on the course in Creative Writing (the students can study prose, poetry, drama or scriptwriting). A unique feature of the curriculum is its blend of artistic, scholarly, and practical components. All students are required to study English (along with the literature and culture of English-speaking countries) and one other foreign language (French, German, Russian or Spanish). Theoretical subjects include history of literature and art, literary theory, translation, philosophy, cultural history and anthropology, linguistics, psychology, rhetoric or theatre. The teaching staff comprises prominent Czech writers, journalists and translators, as well as leading scholars (literary critics, linguists, philosophers, historians) with a professional background at various state universities. The graduates obtain the degrees of BcA. (Bachelor of Fine Arts) or MgA. (Master of Fine Arts). Literary Academy has already produced some fine authors (for instance the prose writers Václav Chochola and Jana Šrámková or the translator Jana Kunová). Nevertheless, experience shows that our graduates can make use of their professional knowledge also in newspapers (including prestigious national dailies), TV and radio stations, publishing houses, advertising companies, in the area of public relations or as organizers of cultural and educational events.
