The two-year Research Master's programme Art Studies lets you dig deeper into the part of the (art)world where your interests lie. It is an intensive scientific programme.

The two year Research programme Art Studies gives you the freedom to follow your own line of study.The programme Art Studies comprises two specialisations: Artistic Research; Golden Age Studies. Students submit a research proposal before the start of the programme. This, along with discussions with the programme director, forms the basis for the course of study. In the research proposal students write down their ideas for tutorials, a thesis and the three electives they wish to take. The electives can be chosen from the programmes Cultural Studies (Algemene cultuurwetenschappen), Art History (Kunstgeschiedenis), Musicology (Muziekwetenschap) or Theatre Studies (Theaterwetenschap). All students attend three core courses, which provide a theoretical background in Art Studies.
