Arts and Culture is a 3-year English-taught bachelor's degree. The programme consists of 2 phases of 1,5 years.

1.The elementary phase, which is the same for all BA Arts and Culture students, consists of a chronologically structured series of 6 modules that address key moments in the history of Western societies.You will learn about the origins and development of Western societies up to the present day. Courses are interdisciplinary from the start of the curriculum. In addition to the regular course work, you will be offered skills trainings.

2. The graduation phase offers courses with a clear research orientation, focusing on contemporary
societal challenges. You will learn to integrate knowledge and approaches from different disciplines and will be able to draw connections between the 4 domains of culture we focus on in our programme:

* Science and Technology

At the beginning of your 3rd year, there is an elective semester in which you can do an internship, study abroad, choose a minor or take courses at another faculty or university or at the local art academy. In the second half of your 3rd year you will write your bachelor's thesis.
