Master programs
KASK & Conservatorium’s master’s programs are laboratories of work and ideas where instructors and promoters stimulate rather than direct their students. As a student, your own process is at the center. The varied range of artistic disciplines at KASK & Conservatorium makes for mutually inspiring and relatively open training programs.

As transdisciplinarity in the arts becomes ever more important, there is room for cross-fertilization in your training program. In addition, you will be introduced to some of the numerous theoretical and artistic research projects our lecturers are engaged in.

The dissertation stimulates you to deliberately examine and formulate themes important to your work as an artist or a designer. We offer English master programs in the visual arts, audiovisual arts, drama and music. There are no differences in curricula, competences, learning outcomes or organization between the English programs and their Dutch counterparts.

Postgraduate programs
We offer a varied range of postgraduate programs: curatorial studies, digital storytelling, musical performance practice and soloist classical music.
