The post-graduate studies have existed in the Institute since 1945. There are two main options: full-time (three years, supposing a research grant) and by correspondence (four years). The applicants have to pass competitive entrance examinations in their special subject, philosophy, and foreign language. The studies are carried out in following specialities:

17.00.01 Theatre studies;
17.00.02 Musicology;
17.00.04 Studies in fine arts, decorative and applied arts, and architecture.
47.06.01 Philosophy, ethics and religious studies

Foreign citizens, including those of the states of CIS, are admitted on the basis of direct agreements concluded between SIAS and the citizens themselves or the legal persons and supposing a payment for professional training.

Another form of post-graduate training is the so-called candidacy (soiskatel’stvo): specialists from other institutions, seeking for an academic degree, can work on their dissertations in permanent contact with the Institute’s departments without officially taking a post-graduate course.
