About

Do you want to be well prepared for a career in the world of the Visual Arts? The Master Program in Art History at University of Groningen offers all the knowledge and expertise that you need.

Overview

The Master Program in Art History is offered by University of Groningen. The MA Art History & Curatorial Studies is a vibrant master's programme that attracts students from all over the globe. It teaches students to become intellectually thorough, socially engaged, and professionally successful art historians.

Key Facts

The programme combines a rigorous, research-driven curriculum with hands-on experience in curatorial practice, working closely together with stakeholders in museums, galleries, alternative art spaces, and heritage institutions. It offers courses on early modern, modern and contemporary art, while also highlighting transhistorical and transcultural means. The program includes courses on artistic research in collaboration with the art academy and explores contemporary conservation issues with a view to eco-critical approaches in art history. All students will go on an excursion to a major European city (Berlin, Paris, Rome or Venice). Next to the MA thesis, small-scale research tutorials allow students to work with individual professors, developing and strengthening their professional profiles. On top of the programme, students can participate in summer schools, Erasmus exchange modules, and research activities, such as workshops and conferences offered by the faculty’s research institutes.

  • Art History Now: Theory, Method, Historiography 
  • Collections & Artefacts: Boijmans
  • Media, Materials, Makers: Arts and/as Research
