Preparing arts professionals for the cultural sector of the future

The cultural world is in a state of rapid transformation due to technological innovation, urbanisation, economic globalisation, and an increasingly unpredictable sociopolitical landscape. All facets of the arts – practice, organisation, leadership, societal relevance, and internationalisation (in Europe and beyond) – are affected by this transformation. Utrecht’s Master of Arts and Society will prepare you to operate as a leading figure in the global arts, media, and cultural sectors of the future.

Our Master’s programme is designed to meet the urgent need for arts professionals who possess rigorous theoretical and research skills coupled with practical abilities and an acute awareness of the current state of the sector at the local and global levels. As a student in this programme you will explore, for example, the dynamics and dilemmas within existing mainstream culture and its relationship with a growing number of “alternative” cultural practices, new models of creative production and industry, and the ever-increasing role of the arts in social justice.

Our Master’s programme is unique in many ways:

  • You will benefit from interdisciplinary programme content that places a special emphasis on grassroots and participatory arts in social contexts.
  • The Department of Media and Culture Studies, our programme's home, is a community of world class scholars whose teaching and research complement Arts and Society.
  • ​You will be trained in highly innovative social research skills that combine methodological rigor, creative expression and critical engagement with the arts practices.
  • You will learn from faculty with international expertise and benefit from a curriculum with a global orientation.
  • Through our organisational partnerships in Europe, Africa, Asia-Pacific, North America, and Latin America, you will get a chance to meet and interact with arts professionals working in a wide variety of contexts.
  • You will have a broad range of opportunities for student exchange and joint research through our numerous academic partnerships across the globe.

After grduation

With a Master in Arts and Society you will:

  • Have an understanding of the latest developments in international discourse on arts and society, which is fed by a variety of scholars from both the humanities and the social sciences.
  • Be able to formulate independent opinions and contribute to this discourse clearly and convincingly.
  • Possess academic and practical skills that you can implement effectively and creatively in your future professional career. You will have acquired these abilities in class, in the library, on the Internet, in practical work, and in the field where you will have carried out research into mainstream and alternative practices.

Our Master’s programme prepares a new generation of creative critical thinkers and doers for the global cultural sector: cross-sector cultural partnerships (i.e. between arts and healthcare or arts and development), transitional processes of conventional cultural institutions looking for new audiences, research into the social and intrinsic value of art, and intercultural and international collaborations.

Literature in globalized world

Comparative Literary Studies involves the transnational study of literature from a theoretically informed perspective. The Utrecht programme is distinguished by its comparative approach and its concern with the relations between literature and other forms of culture. The main focus is on literature written in West-European languages in the modern period, but attention is also paid to world literature in translation.

This Research Master’s programme offers you an excellent balance between linguistic variety and general theoretical perspectives on the nature of literature, its past and its future. As a student in this programme, you will learn to analyse the ways in which literature interacts with (and reflects on) its cultural and social environment against the background of globalisation and new media technologies.

A comparative approach

The ‘comparative’ approach characteristic for Utrecht is understood to involve comparison between literary phenomena along three principal axes:

  1. transculturality (how does literature reflect and negotiate cultural differences and operate across national borders?)
  2. mediality (how does literature work as a medium and relate to other forms of cultural and knowledge production? how are literary phenomena adapted to other media? )
  3. memory (how do stories and cultural forms survive across generations and how are they transformed across time?) 

After graduation

As a graduate of this programme, you will have:

  • Advanced knowledge of literary studies, particularly in the literary cultures of the modern period.
  • Thorough knowledge in a specialism within the field or at the interface with another field.
  • The academic skills to independently identify, formulate, analyse, and suggest possible solutions to theoretical and conceptual problems in the field of literary studies.
  • The academic skills to conduct original research in the field of literary studies.
  • The ability to communicate your literary research findings in a manner that meets the standards of this discipline.
  • The skills to apply your knowledge in a professional academic manner.
  • The qualifications to obtain a career as a literary researcher or to acquire a PhD position in this field.

After successfully completing the Research Master’s programme in Comparative Literary Studies, you will be able to formulate a research proposal for a PhD project in your specialism within the field of literary studies.

Conflict Studies and Human Rights. Theoretical analysis and grounded research. Read more

Conflict Studies and Human Rights: Theoretical analysis and grounded research

Why has ’nationalist’ violence erupted in Ukraine? Will cities become the war zones of the future? How is the term ‘human rights’ used and abused in times of violent conflict? What role did social media play in the rise and subsequent collapse of the Arab Spring? What are the ethical and political issues associated with the use of drones in zones of conflict - and what impact does this have on the subjects of surveillance? Who defines ‘evil’ and what does ‘doing good’ mean? How do ‘humanitarian wars’ affect the everyday lives of the ‘victims’ they protect?

These are just some of the pressing questions arising from the complex interconnectedness of today’s world. A solution to these questions can only be found through systematic analysis of processes of inclusion and exclusion, mobilisation, and collective violence. Addressing these topics properly demands critical reflection on the national and international policies developed to contain, manage, resolve, or transform violent conflict.

Our Master's programme in Conflict Studies and Human Rights is a selective, international graduate programme combining the study of theory with in-depth case study analysis.

The programme focuses on both the dynamics of violent conflicts and the problems associated with national and international military or humanitarian intervention by agencies such as the UN, NATO, or non-governmental organisations.

The Master's programme in Conflict Studies and Human Rights will equip you with the necessary analytical and theoretical skills to engage with global and local challenges in insightful and innovative ways. You will acquire solid theoretical, analytical, and methodological expertise in Conflict Studies and Human Rights, as well as field experience in conflict and post-conflict regions.

You will learn about and develop mastery in three key areas:

Subject knowledge 

You will gain in-depth knowledge of theoretical approaches to understanding and explaining contemporary conflict and human rights. You will also obtain a general understanding of international policy approaches to contemporary conflict and human rights, as well as an understanding of the political contexts in which they are used. 

Evidence-based social research 

You will learn to undertake research that consists of systematic analysis and synthesis and is based on a dialogue between ideas and evidence. In the course of this dialogue, you will be able to identify “sensitising concepts” from theory to facilitate your data collection. You will also use theory to gain an understanding of the evidence you gather and to explain your findings.

Critical attitude towards received wisdom

You will have the conceptual and analytical skills necessary to question conventional ideas and accepted courses of action while defining your own viewpoint. You will also be able to assess the problem of violent conflict and human rights by considering interrelated issues of identity, perception, discourse, and practice.

After graduation

The Master’s programme in Conflict Studies and Human Rights offers good preparation for careers in any sector involving conflict analysis, including the public sector, business, non-governmental and international organisations. Read more about possible career prospects.

Judged best in the field

The highly regarded Keuzegids Master’s Selection Guide 2017 ranked Utrecht University’s Conflict Studies and Human Rights programme as the best in the field in the Netherlands.

In this year's Elsevier Best Studies Survey, students have also rated Conflict Studies as the best programme.

Dive into expanding theatre and dance and interdisciplinary dramaturgy

In this programme you will learn how to investigate and reflect on the dynamic ways in which theatrical and choreographic practices respond to a society in transition. This programme welcomes both Dutch and international students who are interested in dramaturgy, programming and curating, critical writing and art criticism, as well as arts professionals who wish to enrich their practice through academic research.

Contemporary performance practices are increasingly hybrid projects that approach and transcend the borders of theatre, dance, visual arts, music, media and daily life. Theatre and dance are inextricably linked with other media that shape our reality; they extend beyond the theatre’s walls and inject themselves into our daily lives. Theories and concepts derived from the performing arts are progressively deployed in cultural theory and (social) science. Such a field in transition demands an approach that studies theatre and dance as intermedial and interdisciplinary phenomena, and addresses the interrelationships of these phenomena, the audience and the socio-cultural context.

This dynamic is the focus of our Contemporary Theatre, Dance and Dramaturgy programme. 

Research topics

Our research focus areas include:

  • dance, embodiment, and corporeal literacy
  • theory and practice of dramaturgy
  • performance and public space, (urban) scenography
  • intermediality in performance
  • relationships between the performing arts and visual culture

A situated perspective with a practical orientation

Fully taught in English, this Master’s programme takes an academic approach to contemporary performance. We closely collaborate with the field of theatre and dance in the Netherlands and Flanders, internationally regarded as the forerunners of the exciting new trends that emerge on the European stage. You will get acquainted with state-of-the-art theory yet we are also actively oriented towards the practice of theatre and dance. This is exemplified by the focus on dramaturgy, an internship in the second semester, and the many opportunities to meet with practitioners, build-in components within the programme and closely related to the staff’s expansive network.

After graduation

  • You are an independent thinker who is able to reflect critically on contemporary theatre, dance and performance.
  • You will be acquainted with the latest developments in theatre, dance and dramaturgy, and with affiliated contemporary critical and theoretical approaches.
  • You have gained experience in dramaturgy, drawing from theoretical texts on academic perspectives and the actual practice of theatre and dance dramaturgy.
  • You will know how trends in actual practice relate to recent developments in art criticism, curating and programming.
  • You are able to carry out independent research and report on research outcomes according to international academic standards.
  • You will possess a professional attitude when communicating with practitioners, and will know how to put professional and academic skills and knowledge to work in a dynamic professional field.

Since the workfield is multifaceted and comprises both larger and smaller companies as well as public and private initiatives, many alumni combine various jobs - for instance, dramaturge and writer or programmer and artistic advisor.
