The MA in Arts and Culture in Leiden is unique in the Netherlands for the interdisciplinary range of subjects offered and for the diversity of the optional tracks available.
You learn to consider modern art and design as links between media, cultures and communities. You also look at the ways in which sculpture, architecture and visual arts were applied together in the Renaissance and Baroque periods as a means of conveying a convincing message to the viewer.
It is not only the art object itself that is key; the commissioner of the work and the reactions of the public also play a central role. A binding theme is the effect of works of art on the viewer and the ways in which the medium of art works contribute to this. This broad approach ensures you become familiar with different methods and allows you to enter into discussion with other disciplines such as anthropology, natural sciences, theology and gender and international studies.
The programme explores art history across a broad range of specialisms, it studies a substantial body of works of art, buildings and material culture from the early Middle Ages until the present day. In addition to training in a specialisation, it will introduce you to current theories and methodologies of scholarly practice, from a comparative perspective, on Western and Asian art history.
