Programme profile

The backbone of the Arts and Culture programme is its interdisciplinary approach. In small tutorial groups, you will examine the most important themes of modern culture from a variety of perspectives and disciplines.ᅠ You will learn to understand the often conflicting issues that influence social and cultural debates. The analytical skills you develop will allow you to systematically examine social norms and themes in their cultural and historical context.

At the beginning of the third year, there is a free 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 or music academy
