Deze opleiding

This Research Master trains academics in the interrelated domains of modern culture, science, technology, & the arts. This is a two-year, full time, English-language programme.

The Research Master in Cultures of Arts, Science and Technology is a selective, highly reputed and one-of-a-kind programme. In two years, it trains young academics to conduct research in line with the current best practices. You write papers and proposals, work closely with faculty research staff on their projects, and gain a general 'behind-the-scenes' look at how academic research is actually done.

The goal of this Research Master is to train young academics to carry out research in three important domains of modern culture, science, technology and the arts, while taking into account the interrelations between them. The programme is unique in that it combines these three domains into one comprehensive programme. It is a two-year programme taught in English.

Waarom aan de Maastricht University?

A unique feature of Maastricht University is Problem-Based Learning (PBL). Students work in small groups on an academic or practical problem. PBL is a student-centred approach to learning; your teachers are there to help you along, but you are in charge of the learning process. This active approach to teaching encourages you to get involved and allows you to voice your own opinion.
