The University of Arts in Belgrade (Serbian: Универзитет уметности у Београду / Univerzitet umetnosti u Beogradu) is a public university in Belgrade, founded in 1957 as the Academy of Arts to unite four academies. It became a university and acquired its current name in 1973.
The University of Arts was established on June 10, 1957, as the Academy of Arts, a union of the existing higher art schools (academies). Until then independent, the Academy of Music (founded in 1937), the Academy of Fine Arts (founded in 1937), the Academy of Applied Arts (founded in 1948) and the Academy of Theatrical Arts (founded in 1948) became the Academy of Art, an association of higher art schools in Belgrade.
In 1973, these four academies, being the only higher art schools in Serbia at that time, became faculties: the Faculty of Fine Arts, the Faculty of Music, the Faculty of Applied Arts and Design and the Faculty of Dramatic Arts (theater, film, radio and television). Being their association, the then Academy of Arts became the University of Arts in Belgrade.
Interdisciplinary studies of the University of Arts in Belgrade were founded in 2001, as contemporary conceived studies in the domain of polymedia, digital arts, scene design, theory of arts and media and management in the culture. Interdisciplinary studies were created out of the need of studying contemporary artistic or theoretical fields which are not covered by usual artistic and scientific disciplines. These studies research new artistic and theoretical practices, which are linked to studies on particular faculties.
Interdisciplinary studies represent a significant developmental activity of the University of arts which strengthens links of the University with its faculties, improves cooperation amongst professors of the faculties of arts, as well as the experts from various fields
