Course content

What is Mondrian trying to tell us with his painting Victory Boogie Woogie or Vermeer with his Girl with a Pearl Earring? Who actually pays for art and culture? What role models does Hollywood provide us with? If these are questions that interest you, then you should definitely consider the Master’s in Arts & Culture.

The Master’s in Arts & Culture combines a solid theoretical foundation with attention for the field of arts. After graduating, you’ll be a valuable asset to the cultural sector, thanks to your theoretical and methodological knowledge, your well-developed communication skills and your knowledge of the latest scientific insights. With this Master’s degree, you can find work as a project manager or coordinator at museums, art centres, heritage institutions, festivals, art dealers and organisations at the cutting edge of making and financing art and culture. You could also work as a journalist or policy maker.

Specialisations

The Arts & Culture Master’s has four specialisations: two are English-taught and the other two are Dutch-taught. As electives, you can choose courses belonging to the other specialisations. The Dutch-taught specialisations sometimes offer English courses. The specialisations are:

Creative Industries - In this specialisation, you’ll come to understand the field that is buzzing with creativity: where art meets commerce, and where culture generates innovation and social cohesion.

Tourism and Culture - In this English-taught specialisation, you will combine historical, literary, art-historical and other disciplinary approaches to become an academic expert in cultural tourism.

Kunstgeschiedenis (i.e. Art History) - This specialisation delves into art, archaeology and architecture.

Kunstbeleid en mecenaat (i.e. Arts Policy and Patronage) - You’ll not only focus on the art pieces themselves in this specialisation but also the social significance of art and culture.
