Initially created in 1975 as a non-degree program in History of Art, the Graduate Program in Arts has had its curriculum and lines of research modified over the years. After 2010, it became the Non-Degree Graduate Program in Arts with area of concentration in Visual Arts.    Currently, the program offers two lines of research: Cultural Heritage and Teaching and Creative Processes.
The line of research Cultural Heritage gathers students with various educational backgrounds such as Arts, Architecture, History, Geography, Engineering, and Museology.
The large number of teachers from the educational network in need of continuing education led to the creation of a line of research called Teaching and Creative Processes, which addresses the teaching, making, and research in Arts, also responding to the demand of students from UFPel and other universities who already hold a degree in related fields. The program is comprised of three semesters of on-site classes amounting to a total of 360 hours. Courses are offered from Monday to Friday in the evening shift. The Non-Degree Graduate Program in Arts selects candidates and starts its teaching activities in the first half of each year.
