The mission of TAC is to facilitate an education to the graduates that would guarantee their competitiveness in the labor market in Estonia and Europe.

The objective of TAC is to ensure that the next generation of applied artists in Estonia will think creatively, be open to the world and behave responsibly. To achieve this, the College will secure opportunities to maintain professional education in arts in fields of study that, currently, are not a matter of priority at national level.
