The Arts Graduate Program (code 15001016055P1) is in the Area of ​​Evaluation in ARTS / MUSIC and its ​​Concentration Area is in Arts. It currently develops courses in two modalities: The Academic Master's Degree, endorsed on 04/24/2008 by the Coordination of Improvement of Higher Level Personnel (CAPES); and the Doctorate, whose operation was authorized in December of 2015, in which its first Selection Process occurred in the first semester of 2016.

With the implementation of the Post-Graduate Program in Arts, the only and relevant alternative for the training of personnel was developed in the northern region of the country, in the capital of Belém do Pará, in terms of postgraduate studies in the area of ​​Art, covering the artistic languages; Music, Visuals, Scenic and their interfaces. The Program maintains a constant exchange with important intellectual centers from the national and international scene.

The objectives of Program are: to train researchers in arts; prepare qualified professionals for the exercise of teaching, research and production of knowledge in the area; offer, within a public and free university, a qualified space for deepening technical and cultural theoretical knowledge in the area of ​​arts; contribute to the production of theoretical and technical-scientific research in arts and their interfaces; strengthen a critical mass that fosters educational and artistic-cultural development, particularly in the northern region of the country; promote the articulation between artistic practice and aesthetic, cultural and literary theories and concepts; favor the interaction between academic research and the artistic-cultural context;  meet a demand resulting from the growth of arts research in Brazil, providing the state and region of stricto sensu postgraduate courses in the area.

Currently, the Program has 18 permanent professors, 01 visiting professor and 01 collaborator. Of the professors of the PPGARTS, 14 have already completed postdoctoral training. Among the students, there are currently 46 masters, 41 doctoral students (academic) and 14 masters of the professional masters degree, all of them regularly enrolled until the first half of 2018. It is worth mentioning the involvement of the faculty members and students of PPGARTS in the other levels of UFPA teaching: technical and graduation, with emphasis on the National Program for the Training of Basic Education Professors - PARFOR.

Characterized as a multidisciplinary program in Arts, it covers the Visual, Scenic and Music sub-areas and their interfaces, with merged projects in three lines of research;

Research Line 1: Poetics and Processes of Performing Arts - Practical-reflexive studies related to artistic production and performance, considering the diversity of expressions, languages, performances, spectacularities, methodologies, supports and technologies. Rationale: Research Line 1 is dedicated to research in the Arts, focusing on poetry, acting, construction and presentation of an artistic work - show, exhibition, documentary, concert, etc. - accompanied by reflective text. It is the appropriate line for the artist-researcher. The reflections produced by artists and artists-researchers establish an important (but not exclusive) basis in this line.

Research Line 2: Theories and Epistemic Interfaces in Arts - Studies on theories of knowledge in the arts and their epistemic perspectives, in inter and transdisciplinary connections, with other areas of knowledge. Contributions of the practices and modalities of art knowledge in the interfaces between the local and the global and in the dialogue between cultures. Rationale: Research Line 2 is dedicated to the theoretical research of / on epistemic arts and interfaces between arts and other areas of knowledge (such as sciences, sociology, philosophy and anthropology, for example). Authors focused on transits between areas of knowledge establish an important (but not exclusive) basis in this line.

Research Line 3: History, Critiques and Education in Arts - Theoretical-applied studies on modalities of expression, methods and artistic practices in history, critiques and education, considering their respective disciplinary, inter and transdisciplinary aspects. Rationale: Research Line 3 is dedicated to theoretical and / or theoretical-applied research of / on the arts in relation to the disciplines traditionally considered as fields of art in common with other fields of knowledge (art history, philosophy of art, art critiques and art-education, for example). Authors dedicated to these subareas of knowledge establish an important (but not exclusive) basis in this line.

It should be emphasized that the research projects developed by the professors are directly linked to the research lines of Program, as well as the master's and doctoral projects that they have directed and also the disciplines taught, which seek to serve as a subsidy for intellectual production of the Program as a whole. It is worth mentioning that among the offered subjects, compulsory items are directly in dialogue with the methodological construction of the researches under development and a framework of optional subjects recommended to the students according to the research lines to which their projects are articulated, therefore, as a relevant epistemological basis for ongoing research, in dialogue with other referents, in addition to the specific projects of each student.
