The Research Master's programme Artistic Research seeks to form a bridge between art and standard scholarly research by offering insight into and training in new forms of research.
These new forms provide an alternative to existing approaches, stressing applied, practical research as opposed to fundamental, theoretical research. The Research Master's in Artistic Research takes an experimental approach to both specific art objects and broader artistic concepts and opens them up to interpretation. Topics and strategies relevant for current scholarly debates and contemporary artistic practice form core components of the programme. The University of Amsterdam's (UvA) research programme Artistic Research is unique in the Netherlands, providing an alternative to the at times artificial opposition between professional art training and academic programmes for the study of art in the Netherlands. This research programme reflects the flourishing practice of national and international research in the arts.
Part of this programme is taught in collaboration with other (internal or external) art institutes. In such cases, the programme is carried out by the supplying' institute. Examples are: the professional art training programmes at the Amsterdam School of the Arts and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy/Sandberg Institute, and the academic programmes at the schools of Art, Religion and Cultural Studies at the Graduate School for Humanities of the University of Amsterdam.
Artistic Research yields 120 ECTS credits:
The specific number of credits a student is required to obtain through coursework is determined by the admissions committee and is based on the student's previous qualifications. Fulfilment of all the requirements will take at least one year.
The research project and thesis together provide a sample of the student's artistic research, which is carried out at an art institution. A committee of supervisors and external experts are responsible for the project/thesis evaluation. The subject of the research project and the subsequent thesis must be mutually agreed upon by the student and academic adviser(s). The project and thesis are completed in one semester.
Artistic Research is a specialisation of the Dutch Master's programme in Art Studies. Students who successfully complete this programme receive a Masters degree in Arts and Culture and the title Master of Arts (MA).
Students who show exceptional promise during a Regular or Professional programme are encouraged to continue their studies in a Research programme. Once students are admitted to the Research programme, they can transfer the credits earned during their previous course of study towards their Research Master's degree. The examination committee determines which courses qualify for transfer.
