The Master's programme in Arts and Culture (research) at Leiden University is unique in offering a two-year programme that integrates art history and theory with literary studies and media studies.
The Research Master's in Arts and Culture at Leiden University stands out from other Research Master's programmes in art history in the Netherlands by its global character, focus on design and applied arts, integrated study of the visual arts and architecture, its intense collaboration with the MA in Media Studies and the MA in Literary Studies this joint teaching programme gives you the opportunity to acquire a valuable range of skills, both disciplinary and interdisciplinary, historical and theoretical. The research master's offers a flexible programme that encourages you to adopt an interdisciplinary perspective, but also gives you considerable freedom to follow disciplinary courses within your 'home discipline'. You can focus on Art and Culture, Media Studies or Literary Studies, and can opt for an interdisciplinary focus applied to a single period (Middle Ages/Early Modern resp. Modern and Contemporary), or an approach that concentrates on a single discipline. All students follow compulsory joint theoretical and methodological courses.
