    Freedom

    In my research master Literary and Cultural Studies, I focus on the interaction between artist, art and the beholder, how does art move us, and the way we are literally and figuratively moved. I chose this research master because it provides the opportunity to explore these interconnections in depth while offering the freedom to chose from a wide range of possibilities to broaden my horizon. There are only a few core courses and together with the staff, you can design your own programme according to interests, curiosities and needs. For example, I have the chance to do a research internship at the Max-Planck-Institute for empirical aesthetics in Frankfurt, within the framework of the research master.

    Theory and methods

    Literary and Cultural Studies focusses especially on theory and methods: within small groups of fellow students and professors with diverse research interests, these are discussed and reflected on a lot. The programme is challenging and demands a lot of reading, critical thinking and academic writing. At the same time, it takes you a step further in your own development of research skills. I chose this programme at the University of Groningen because it offers this precise and in-depth knowledge of theories and methods that I feel I need for academic research. And I would definitely recommend this research master to students who are eager and curious to learn and understand the role of arts in our society.
