De opleiding is bedoeld voor kritische en creatieve denkers met uiteenlopende interesses. Als afgestudeerde van deze opleiding heb je een breed inzicht in actuele kwesties die van nationaal en internationaal belang zijn, heb je ervaring in het voeren van stevige debatten en ben je in staat zelf een rol te spelen in hedendaagse controverses op het gebied van kunst en literatuur.

Belangrijke informatie voor studiekiezers

Wij vinden het belangrijk om je voor te bereiden op de Nederlandse en internationale arbeidsmarkt.

Felix Quarnström, Student Ambassadeur Kunst, Literatuur en Samenleving

Felix Quarnström is from Finland, he has a bachelor’s degree in Art, Literature & Culture, specialisation Arts and Culture from Maastricht University and decided to come back to Maastricht for the master’s programme in Art, Literature and Society. “After my bachelor’s degree I took a gap year and moved to Berlin, like many of my fellow students. I tried to find a job but when that didn’t work out, I went back to Finland and worked a while as a radio host. I always knew that I wanted to do a master’s programme, the question was which one. I looked at semiotics, one of my favourite topics, and film-related studies. Considered other universities as well, but in the end I found I missed Maastricht. I’d really enjoyed my bachelor’s study here, so I figured I would definitely like this master’s programme as well, if not more. And I do! So far, it’s been great. I’m definitely not done with studying yet and might take up a second master’s after this year.”

      NWO has awarded a Vidi grant worth 800.000 euro to six experienced UM researchers: Dr. Tamar Sharon (FASoS), Prof. Caroline Goukens, Prof. Olivier Marie and Dr. Annelies Renders (all SBE) and Prof. Bart Rutten and Dr. Judith Sluimer (both FHML/MUMC+). The grant enables them to develop their own innovative line of research and set up their own research group.

      Sharon’s research is about "The Googlization of health and the common good". As we move into the digital era, companies like Google and Apple are becoming important actors in health research. But how do we ensure that this serves the public interest? This research studies the impact of the “Googlization of health” on the common good, and investigates ways to secure it.
