What will I learn?

The two-year Master's track in Arts, Media and Literary Studies is a specialization within the Research Master's degree in Arts and Culture.

Arts, Media and Literary Studies equips students with knowledge and skills to become researchers and experts on the role that the arts, literature and media play in society, now and in the past. The programme offers a rich multi- and interdisciplinary framework within which students can specialize in one of the following disciplines or combinations of disciplines, under close supervision of a highly qualified research faculty:

  • arts and culture education,
  • cognitive studies of arts, media and culture,
  • cultural studies,
  • digital humanities,
  • film studies,
  • history of art, architecture and landscape,
  • literary studies
  • media and journalism studies,
  • music studies,
  • theatre and performance studies.

Job prospects

As a graduate of this track, you will have an analytical, critical and independent attitude towards the arts and culture. You will be well prepared for a research career in the areas of literature, arts and culture, both at universities and private research institutes.

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.
