Arts and Culture: Comparative Arts and Media Studies

The master's programme in Arts and Culture offers high-quality education by nationally and internationally renowned professors and lecturers. You will take courses related to developments in art, architecture, media, heritage, creative industry and design.

 

The programme has five specialisations. Some specialisations place current affairs in a historical perspective, while others deal with the contemporary context of art, culture and media.

Three of the specialisations are taught entirely in English. The other two are taught in Dutch, with some lectures given in English.

 

Each specialisation is 60 EC, of which you have room to customise 6 to 12 EC. A number of courses are compulsory, but you will be given the opportunity to develop your own specialisation. You will do this through your choice of electives, the topics of your papers and, of course, the topic of your master’s thesis.

You will follow the course 'Trending Topics' together with the students of the other specialisations.

Facts and Figures

 

Summary

Focus on intermediality in contemporary media and visual culture
As part of the master's programme in Arts and Culture, the Comparative Arts and Media Studies specialisation focuses on the interrelations within and between various old and new media, as well as between media and visual arts. These interconnections have intensified with the arrival of digital media. And a 'hypermedium' has developed from the on-screen interplay of words, images and sounds, as well as through the technological convergences of cinema, television, radio and digital media.

In this specialisation, you will explore historical and theoretical perspectives on these phenomena while also taking into account real-life developments in the area of museum practices. Our graduates have had careers in education, research, media and the visual arts.

 

Amsterdam

Studying in the city of Amsterdam is a unique experience. The urban setting and the multicultural mindset of the people of Amsterdam, combined with the energy of a thriving cultural city life give your education a special dimension.

 

Unique programme

This programme is unique in the Netherlands because it gives you the opportunity to focus on comparisons between various media and art forms or to study intermedialities in relation to a specific dominant medium.

 

Cultural collaboration

There are many opportunities for collaboration with the cultural institutions in Amsterdam. Our wide-ranging academic courses allow you to explore the collaborative possibilities to their fullest extent and to put your knowledge into practice in unique and exciting ways.

 

Professional skills

During the Comparative Arts and Media Studies specialisation, you will gain a sharp eye (and ear) for all kinds of media and art products, and you will also learn to analyse these and place them in their various contexts. Moreover, you will develop professional skills such as critical thinking, presentation and writing skills. You will also learn to conduct research on a variety of topics, both in academia and in the world at large. In addition to developing a solid grasp of the cultural landscape, you will learn to think, speak and write about relevant topics at a highly advanced level.

The programme is built around five core courses (30EC) and a master’s thesis (18EC). You will also choose to take elective courses or conduct an internship (12EC).

The first semester consists of three courses with historiographical, aesthetic and narratological perspectives on intermedialities in audiovisual culture, plus a department-wide lecture series on current issues in Arts & Culture.

In the second semester, you will get acquainted with intermedialities at work in current crossmedial exhibitions while also writing your master’s thesis

You can apply online without having the test results, but in case you haven’t taken a test yet we advise you to plan a test date as soon as possible.
