  Faculty of the Arts   



As an off-campus faculty, the Faculty of the Arts is located in the ancient town of Shushtar situated on a small plateau below the confluence of the Kārūn River with one of its minor tributaries .The history of modern city of Shushtar has its rood in the ancient Elam, the ancient pre-Iranic civilization centered in the far west and southwest of what is now modern-day Iran, stretching from the lowlands of what is now Khuzestan and Ilam Province as well as a small part of southern Iraq. Besides the many historical and archeological sites, the city is famous for its great hydraulic system constructed in ancient times for the disposal and use of the waters of the Kārūn River. This historical hydraulic system has been honored as a masterpiece of creative genius and recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.

In 2000, however, with the aim of preserving this invaluable cultural heritage, and enlightening the present and future generations on it, and in an attempt to fulfill the growing thirst of the young people in our province, Khuzestan, for continuing their education in the arts, the Faculty of the Arts was established at Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz as an off-campus in the city of Shushtar in a delightful green 60 acre area

The first two groups of students were admitted in the fields of painting and graphic design at B.A. program. Furthermore, to promote and encourage academic research activities in the arts, the faculty initiated the MA program of Art Research. Up to now more than 1000 students have graduated from our Faculty.   

The faculty is equipped with spacy and modern workshop, up-to-date computer site, good library, amphitheater, student dining hall, and boys and girls dormitories. Every year the faculty hosts seminars, exhibitions, and art festivals. It is the home for many public artistic activities in our province; we also publish an academic journal, "Body", on visual arts as well as other specialized subjects.  The faculty has now twelve faculty members and about twenty-five visiting lecturers.
