Bachelors in Arts Studies in Nijmegen in Netherlands. The programme focuses on art in its various forms: fine arts, literature, music, theatre, film and digital media. The approach is both interdisciplinary and multi-medial: you will not only analyse these art forms in and by themselves, but also learn to compare and contrast them. You 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 (the value of) culture. Arts and Culture Studies teaches you to discern differences between art forms, and between contemporary and historical valuations of art; explain how arts and culture are socially, politically and ideologically constructed; apply theoretical notions to analyze works of art or cultural phenomena; formulate a clear and well-founded vision on art and (popular) culture; write academically sound essays that contribute to current debates on art and culture.
