Career prospects

During the Master’s programme you will gain specialist knowledge in Art and Visual Culture against the background of a broad spectrum of theories and methods in the humanities. Through your individual Master’s research, you will also have had the opportunity to concentrate on a very specific phenomenon in your own field.

Our graduates are much appreciated by employers for their research and analytical skills and for their ability to master large quantities of data and view the results of their research in a larger context.
