The Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design, with a history extending back over 250 years, is one of the largest art academies in Germany. Its status is equivalent to that of a scientific university, according to Baden-Württemberg federal state law. Already in 1770 the Académie des Arts founded nine years previously by Duke Carl Eugen of Württemberg became affiliated to the Carlsschule, which was granted university status in 1782. The associated right to award doctorates has been practiced since 2002. The Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design has the right to award doctor titles in the fields of architecture (Dr.-Ing.), history of art, media studies, visual arts education and aesthetics (Dr. phil.).
Since 2018 PhD dissertations graded “summa cum laude” are published under the common title “Stuttgarter Akademieschriften” by Heidelberg University Library.
Other dissertations completed at the State Academy of Arts and Design can be found on the publication platform Publikationsplattform ART-Dok.
