Is this programme for you?

Our Research Master's programme in Cultural Leadership educates futures leaders in the field of culture, both at national and international level.

In order to broaden our students' outlook on their own cultures and provide them with the opportunity to exchange ideas with their peers. we have joined forces with Roma Tre University. In the second semester, students spend three months in Rome. The period ends with a Spring School at the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome (KNIR).

Why study cultural leadership with the University of Groningen?

The programme's broad definition of cultural leadership and its multidisciplinary set-up distinguishes it from programmes offered elsewhere in the Netherlands and abroad that only deal with specific areas of culture as well as from programmes that primarily address the organizational and managerial aspects of the cultural field.

How to apply

Prospective candidates must hold a BA degree in Archaeology, History, Language and Cultural Studies, Arts and Cultural Studies or a subject relevant to the programme.

Career opportunities

Our graduates have found jobs as:

  • cultural entrepreneurs, designing, promoting, and organizing cultural events on a variety of scales: from (inter)national festivals to regional and local projects;
  • cultural administrators, policymakers and educators, working on different levels of government, public foundations, and pedagogical institutions;
