The Master programme is intended for students who have already finished some form of higher art education and who already have at least the beginning of an independent artistic practice. During the Master study they can pursue a two-year personal research project with the aim to deepen or transform their own artistic niche within the broad field of the arts and sciences. Depending on the research proposal and the background of the student, a study and research plan is made that enables the student to acquire the skills, research methods and conceptual background necessary for their research. Because of the tailored nature of the individual study trajectories, master’s students are expected to further develop their independence, self-organisation and critical thought during their studies.


On top of this there are a number of collective activities for all Master students, with the aim to develop the historical and theoretical context of the individual research and in order to stimulate the exchange of skills, knowledge and viewpoints between students.


The students develop a range of professional competencies regarding three domains:  the artistic-technical domain, the professional world and the theoretical domain. The artistic-technical domain is the basis for all activities at the Interfaculty and is therefore addressed in all forms of tuition. Students learn about the professional world through our research projects, the ArtScience labs, the ArtScience colloquium and the individual coaching. The theoretical domain is addressed in our theoretical courses, research projects, the ArtScience labs, the ArtScience colloquium, the individual coaching and the extra courses we offer the master’s students.


Within each of these domains students are expected to develop competencies within these areas: creativity, critical reflection, growth and innovation, organising, communication, relating to the environment and collaboration. These competencies are the basis of the evaluation by the teachers at the end of each course module and they are also used to evaluate the presentations at the end of each semester.
