In this two-year research Master's programme, art and literature are studied as elements of a larger, shared cultural domain, rather than as autonomous media.
This programme is based on the assumption that literature and art are part of a larger cultural entity, demanding a shared framework of theory and methodology. Although the programme offers two specialisations - Art History and Literature - part of the curriculum is combined (and comparative), which underlines the interconnectedness of both disciplines.
As a student, you will benefit from the multiple perspectives and (inter)disciplinary discourse and exchange. Also, you will have ample choice in defining your field of interest by opting for a disciplinary or interdisciplinary and period-bound path, or a combination of the two.
It is a programme that encourages an interdisciplinary perspective, but also gives considerable freedom to follow literature and art historical courses within a ‘home discipline’. The diversity of the programme is characteristic of the Leiden Faculty of Humanities, with its broad spectrum of teaching and research in both Western and non-Western literatures and art histories.
