Good NVAO accreditation for Research Master Cultures of Arts, Science and Technology
The Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organisation (NVAO) accredits higher education programmes in the Netherlands every six years. The research master in Arts and Culture: Cultures of Art, Science and Technology (CAST) was accredited and received an exceptional score of ‘good’.
The panel considers CAST’s profile to be distinct and unique. According to the panel, the curriculum of CAST incorporates all of the programme’s intended learning outcomes in a highly coherent and structured manner. The result is a challenging curriculum that thoroughly prepares students for the various facets of an academic career.
CAST graduates’ employability is excellent and a large majority of CAST alumni end up in research positions. The professional trajectory of CAST graduates leads them into very diverse fields and institutional settings, which demonstrates their versatility.
