The Artistic Research track of the MA in Kunstwetenschappen (Art Studies) seeks to form a bridge between art and standard scholarly research by offering insight into and training in new forms of research. These new forms provide an alternative to existing approaches, stressing applied, practical research as opposed to fundamental, theoretical research.
The Master's programme in Artistic Research takes an experimental approach to both specific art objects and broader artistic concepts and opens them up to interpretation. Topics and strategies relevant for current scholarly debates and contemporary artistic practice are central.
Studying Artistic Research at the University of Amsterdam
The University of Amsterdam's (UvA) Master's programme in Artistic Research is unique in the Netherlands, providing an alternative to the at times artificial opposition between professional art training and academic programmes for the study of art in the Netherlands. This Master reflects the flourishing practice of national and international research in the arts.
Accreditation and degree
The quality of this Master's programme has been assessed by the Accreditation Organisation of The Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This means that upon successful completion of the programme students will receive an accredited Master's degree in Kunstwetenschappen and the title Master of Arts.
Applicants for the Master's programme should have at least a Bachelor's degree or its equivalent in a relevant field. The level of the Bachelor's degree must be comparable to that of a Dutch Bachelor's degree.
