Official description

Silpakorn University was originally established as the School of Fine Arts under the Fine Arts Department.

The School gradually developed and was officially accorded a new status and name, Silpakorn University, on 12 October 1943.

Located in the inner city of Bangkok, the University, during the first twenty-five years of its existence, underwent limited physical expansion. The development of its academic interests and activities during this period consisted largely of diversifying the main areas of the four faculties into sub-specializations. Hence, a new campus, Sanam Chandra Palace Campus, was established in Nakhon Pathom Province in the former -residential compound of King Rama VI. The first two faculties founded on this campus were the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Education in 1968 and 1969, respectively.

Now Silpakorn has become a full-grown university offering degree programs at both undergraduate and graduate levels in all major fields of art and design, science and technology, health science, social sciences and humanities. In addition, it also maintains a Graduate School, Art Galleries, an Art and Culture Center, a Computer Center, a Research and Development Institute, and other facilities and functional services. In 1999, a new faculty, the Faculty of Music, was established for formal degree training in both theory and practice of western music, including classical, popular, jazz, and commercial music.
