Overview

Are you passionate about culture? Do you like sitting in the front row at music festivals, theatre plays, and art-house films? Do you like watching television series, visiting exhibitions, or attending poetry slams? Would you like to learn the skills of analysing art works and the methods you can use to reflect on your experiences? Are you ready to join the social and political debate on the arts? Then Arts and Culture Studies might be just the programme for you.

What will you learn?

Arts and Culture Studies focuses on art in its various forms: fine arts, literature, music, theatre, and film, as well as digital media and popular culture. Our approach is interdisciplinary, comparative and multi-medial: you will not only analyse art forms in and by themselves but will also learn to compare and contrast them. Students are invited to explore art and culture from a number of theoretical, historical, political and social perspectives, incorporating European, North American and global views on culture. You will learn to discern differences between art forms, and between contemporary and historical valuations of art, as well as how to apply theoretical concepts to analyse cultural phenomena. During the programme you’re stimulated to develop your own well-founded vision of art and (popular) culture.

Programme structure

The Bachelor’s programme is divided into two semesters and four periods per year. At the end of each period, you will have a series of exams to test what you have learned.
