The curriculum is organized in:

The teaching staff of the calligraphy course of study is composed as follows:

The calligraphy training ends with the completion of an end-of-study project including a bibliographical research on a subject of Moroccan or oriental calligraphy or ornaments, according to the choice of the student, under the supervision of a specialized teacher.
