Arts and Culture
What is the future of democracy? Do science and technology automatically mean progress? Is the opposition between ‘High Culture’ and ‘Low Culture’ disappearing? What will be the long-term effects of new media? Such questions are at the heart of Western identity and culture in an increasingly globalised world. The bachelor’s programme in Arts and Culture is for students who want to understand the complex interaction between science, culture, politics and the arts in Western society.
The backbone of the Arts and Culture programme is its interdisciplinary approach. In small tutorial groups, you will examine the most important themes of modern culture from a variety of perspectives and disciplines. You will learn to understand the often conflicting issues that influence social and cultural debates. The analytical skills you develop will allow you to systematically examine social norms and themes in their cultural and historical context.
Arts and Culture is a three-year programme and is available in two tracks, one taught in English and the other taught in Dutch.
