FAMU was historically founded as part of a four-faculty academy for the performing arts, together with schools focused on theatre, music and dance. (The Dance Faculty was never fully established as a separate faculty, but movement courses are found within the Music Faculty of HAMU). Since 1947 FAMU coexists with the faculties of theatre DAMU and music HAMU as one part of Academy of Performing Arts in Prague AMU. Our sister faculties have similarly high reputation in their fields and all these schools profit from mutual co-operation on various levels, made easier by the location of all of them within the ancient center of Prague.
The three faculties also share common departments and facilites: notably the AMU Press, Language Centre, GAMU art gallery, AMU Sports, and Movement Center.
The academy is subsidized by the state, but it is self-governed. Each faculty has a dean, elected by the faculty academic senate and appointed by the rector. The whole academy has a rector, elected by the academy senate and appointed by the president of the Czech republic.

Complete information on the whole Academy of Perfoming Arts can be found on its website.
