Arts and Culture Studies
Welcome prospective student Arts and Culture Studies!
Arts and Culture Studies focuses on art in its various forms: fine arts, literature, music, theatre and film, as well as digital media and popular culture. Our approach is interdisciplinary, comparative and multi-medial: you will not only analyse art forms in and by themselves, but will also learn to compare and contrast them. Students are invited to explore art and culture from a number of theoretical, historical, political and social perspectives, incorporating European, North American and global views on culture.
On this page you can find all information with regard to your first year of the Arts and Culture Studies programme in Nijmegen!

Weekly overview (example)
This is what your week could look like during the first period! The dark blue columns represent lectures, whereas the lighter blue ones represent seminars. You are also able to see at what time you have class, who is teaching it, and where your class takes place. You'll receive more information about your personal schedule when you're fully enrolled.
