ArtScience (Master)

University of Arts, The Hague

Master Postgraduate Den Haag

Course description

Qualification Master of Music
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary Are you interested in art, science and music? Are you an inventor, creative and curious? Than the Interfaculty ArtScience is the thing for you!
Course description The Master programme ArtScience, like the Bachelor programme, is based on the concept of the open curriculum. Because the Master students are admitted on the basis of a specific research plan and because two years is too short to familiarise themselves with the Interfaculty before making choices, this research plan is translated into a study plan together with the coaches. This study plan maps out the individual path of the student through the teaching modules on offer within the Interfaculty and related departments and institutions. There should be an agreement on this plan at the beginning of October at the latest.
Study subjects During the programme you will develop or transform your own artistic niche within the broad field of art and science. In the first semester nearly all courses are organised. These courses run in four tracks and follow an ‘open curriculum’. The second semester (‘Output’) is almost completely dedicated to the students’ individual projects.
Course objectives Participants in the master's programme of the ArtScience Interfaculty are admitted on the basis of a research proposal. A personal coach will then assist in devising a study- and research plan that includes course modules, projects and labs offered within the ArtScience Interfaculty, the Academy as well as the Royal Conservatoire and Leiden University.
