Groningen, 10 February 2020 – Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the University of Groningen will soon start an artistic PhD programme. Obtaining a PhD in art will become possible through this programme, within which a piece of artwork will be an integral component of the final PhD product.
On Monday 10 February, the members of the Board of the University of Groningen (UG) and of the Executive Board of Hanze University of Applied Sciences (Hanze UAS) signed a covenant to commit to this collaboration.
Hanze UAS and the UG are working together within the research platform GRASP (Groningen Research Arts and Society Platform). By means of this platform, both institutes aim to strengthen one another in the area of teaching and research in the field of art and society. An important component of this collaboration is the possibility of obtaining an artistic PhD.
Artistic research delivers unique knowledge and methods within the field of research into art and society. This knowledge may also be of value for research practices in other fields.
The opportunity to obtain an artistic PhD will become
possible within GRASP and will fall under the Graduate School for the Humanities (GSH) at the UG in collaboration with the Research Centre Art & Society at Hanze UAS. The artistic PhD will comprise a regular PhD programme that falls under the existing PhD regulations of the UG but within which a piece of artwork will form an integral component of the research being conducted. It is intended as a research programme for visual artists, musicians, designers, dancers, theatre makers and art teachers. The artistic PhD programme will be overseen by at least one supervisor from the UG and one co-supervisor from the Research Centre Art & Society at Hanze UAS.
The parties involved from within Hanze UAS are the Research Centre Art & Society, the Minerva Art Academy and the Prins Claus Conservatoire. The parties involved from within the UG are the Research Centre for Arts and Society, the Graduate School for the Humanities (both at the Faculty of Arts) and University College Groningen.
