Research Graduate School for the Humanities PhD programme Admission

Artistic PhD

From 2020 onwards, the Graduate School for the Humanities offers an Artistic PhD trajectory in collaboration with Research Centre Art & Society, Hanze UAS. Both institutions are committed to fostering artistic research within and beneficial to societal and environmental contexts.

Against this background, the Artistic PhD in Groningen combines artistic and academic work (the artistic work being treated as equivalent to a ‘technological design’, as stipulated in paragraph 4.1. of the PhD regulations of the University of Groningen).

PhD training and supervision is offered by the Arts in Society Research Centre (part of the Institute for the Study of Culture) and Research Centre Art & Society, affiliated with Minerva Art Academy and Prince Claus Conservatoire of Hanze UAS Groningen. Candidates are selected based on their artistic quality and academic experience by a committee with members of both Research Centres, representing University and Academy in equal parts.

If you want to apply for an Artistic PhD, please contact: Prof. dr. A. Lehmann, a.s.lehmann rug.nl. For preliminary training in artistic research, please contact dr. Anke Coumans, a.c.m.coumans pl.hanze.nl. The Artistic PhD trajectory is part of GRASP, the Groningen Research in Arts & Society Platform, to be launched in 2020.
