The Bachelor's programme in Arts and Culture Studies focuses on art in its various forms: fine arts, literature, music, theatre, film and digital media. The approach is both interdisciplinary and multi-media: you will not only analyze 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 social, politically and ideologically constructed;
apply theoretical notions to analyze works of art or cultural phenomena;
formulate a clear and well-founded vision of art and (popular) culture;
write academically sound essays that contribute to current debates on art and culture.
