The Arts and Culture programme has three main overall perspectives: the study of works of art, design and buildings from a global perspective; the focus on historical and contemporary works of art, design and architecture in terms of agency and reception; and to study art and design as engaged cultural responses to life sciences.
Every year, international students flock to Leiden to obtain their Master’s degree. To facilitate their integration into the university and student life in Leiden, the Humanities Faculty has set up the Humanities Master’s Buddy Programme. Our aim with this programme is to welcome new students and create a social and academic network from day one. Be a buddy - register now!
During the summer period, the Student Administration is open at adjusted times.
