What is Corpus? 

Corpus ry is the Subject Association for Literature, Art History, Art Education and Museology students at the University of Jyväskylä. In addition, we are a Subject Association for KUOMA students (Cultural Environment Masters Studies), and together with Sane ry (Subject Association of Finnish Language) we share the students of Pedagogical Finnish Language and Literature Studies. Our association is a part of the Department of Music, Art and Culture Studies together with Music Science and Music Pedagogy. 

Our mission is to protect students’ interests, brief freshmen to campus life and organize a variety of events, including parties, seminars, professional events and excursions to theatres and museums.
