What will I learn?

Curatorial Studies in Art History is a one-year programme. We offer excellent students of the master's track in Art History an additional semester-long internship. Our programme aims for an integration of early modern and modern and contemporary art, while also offering more period-specific courses. Our faculty includes the director of the Groninger Museum, Andreas Blühm, who teaches a course on the theory and practice of making exhibitions for all curatorial students. The following institutions regularly offer internships to our students: Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, Museum Catharijneconvent en het Centraal Museum in Utrecht, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden, the Groninger Museum, the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden, Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen in Haarlem, the Stedelijke Musea Brugge, and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.

At the start of the academic year 2020-2021, education will be offered partially online. This principally applies to all lectures. Seminars and practicals will be offered on campus as much as possible. However, there will be an online alternative for those students who can't be present in Groningen.

Job prospects

Our individualized attention to students, rigorous courses, and internship provide exceptional preparation for a museum career, not only as a curator but also as a museum educator. Our programme also caters to the profession of the independent curator.
