Bachelor’s programme Arts, Media and Society
The English-taught full-time Bachelor’s programme in Arts, Media and Society takes three years, and you will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree. In principle, you will be studying for 40 hours a week – a full working week. Around 16 hours a week will be spent in lectures and tutorial groups. In the rest of the week you will be studying independently.
Year 1: Working on fundamental knowledge
- In the first semester of Arts, Media and Society, you will establish core knowledge and competences in the field of Art History.
- While contemporary art is the main focus of the programme, in order to understand the present and the future, you will need fundamental knowledge about the past.

Year 2: Studying cutting-edge developments
- Focusing on global issues in our globalised and technological era, you will examine the impact of art and media in society, and of course, the interactions between them.
- You will immerse yourself in the world of cutting-edge developments in contemporary art and media — from traditional media to digital media, from activist art to poetic encounters.
- Social media will be examined as platforms and strategies for political and social action, e.g., during the Arab Spring.
Year 3: Theorising intersections and relations
- In the third year, you will advance your theoretical understanding at the intersection of art, media and society and develop your own critical analysis in the form of a thesis.
- The dynamic exchange between artistic strategies and activist strategies will be a converging point of the programme.
- In the Arts, Media and Society programme there is also a free semester in which you can do an internship, study abroad or follow a minor programme at another faculty.
