As an IBACS student, you will study the world of arts and culture from a sociological and economic view, but you will also be familiarised with theories on media, policy, marketing, and aesthetics.

The International Bachelor Arts and Culture Studies in Rotterdam offers a unique approach to arts and culture. You will study the world of arts and culture from a sociological and economic view, but you will also be familiarised with theories on media, policy, marketing and aesthetics.

As an International Bachelor Arts and Culture Studies student you’ll learn to answer questions such as: Why does one listen to Dua Lipa, while other loves Beethoven? And how come some have both in their playlist? What do the budget cuts on arts and culture mean for the way the sector is organised? Who decides about the worth of art and how it is presented to the public?

We study the world of art. In this world, creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship are key concepts. These characteristics do not only apply to artists, they are also increasingly essential for you, the future arts and culture specialist that engages with art and culture behind the scenes.

And did you know that you can also combine IBACS with a programme at the Willem de Kooning Academy or Codarts? The Dual Degree RASL is perfect for those who want to simultaneously practice and study the arts.
