What will I learn?

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 on art and (popular) culture.
