The Division of Philosophy, Art and Critical Thought at The European Graduate School (EGS) is still accepting applications for its June and August sessions (2016). See the course overview for more information. Apply now here and begin your MA/PhD this August, 2016.

The European Graduate School (EGS) is a European University, based in Saas-Fee Switzerland and Valletta, Malta, with two divisions: Philosophy, Art and Critical Thought (PACT) and Arts, Health and Society (AHS). Established in the Swiss Alps in 1994, The EGS has become one of the most relevant academic and artistic communities in Europe for philosophical, artistic and socio-political inquiry. Together with its faculty, EGS students take part in the active evolution of what a University can be, while attaining an accredited Masters and/or Doctoral degree

There are two streams in the PACT Division: Philosophy, Art, and Social Thought (PAS) and Literary, Musical and Visual Thought (LMVT). Masters and Doctoral students engage with brilliant and renowned faculty in their field (one or two sessions per year) to complete their first and second year coursework. For the rest of the year, students prepare for their sessions and work on their MA Thesis or PhD Dissertation with the guidance of their Advisor or Supervisor. The MA Degree is two to three years, and the PhD degree is four to five years.

Now in its 21st year, The EGS is pleased to announce its curriculum for the June and August sessions with Professors Chris Kraus, Sylvère Lotringer, Hélène Cixous, Adel Abdessemed, Victor Vitanza, Diane Davis, Michael Schmidt, Heiner Goebbels, Georges Didi-Huberman, Jean-Luc Nancy, Werner Hamacher, Geert Lovink, Alenka Zupancic, Mladen Dolar, Benjamin Bratton, Casey Reas, Metahaven, Keller Easterling, Slavoj Žižek, and Philip Beesley (June session) and Professors Christopher Fynsk, Philippe Beck, Daniel Birnbaum, Avital Ronell, Pierre Alféri, Judith Butler, Wendy Brown, Geoffrey Bennington, Elissa Marder, Simon Critchley, Rebecca Comay, Terry Smith, and Boris Groys (August Session).
