The Folkwang University of the Arts is the central place for artistic training in music, theatre, dance, design and academic studies. In line with the Folkwang idea of the cross-disciplinary interaction of the arts, a plurality of different art forms and disciplines have been united under one roof here since 1927. Folkwangers from the photography, communication design and industrial design programs have been re-included as of 2007.

Music, Theatre, Dance, Design, Academic Studies – studying at extraordinary places
Studying at Folkwang means studying at very special locations: in historical buildings as well as award-winning structures in the heart of the Ruhr Metropolis. Five locations in Essen-Werden, Essen-Worldheritage Site Zollverein, Duisburg, Bochum and Dortmund provide the Folkwang University of the Arts with solid roots in one of the largest socio-economic centres of Europe.
