Training the curators of the future

As a graduate of the Dual Master’s in Curating Art and Cultures programme, you will have gained both the academic knowledge and the practical work experience to become a curator of the future.

You will have learned not only about museum and curatorial studies, but also developed your own field of specialisation. You will have had direct, hands-on, professional experience as a curator-in-training, working for a whole year in one of the leading museums in the Netherlands – in areas such as organisation and policy, registration and reporting of research results, art handling, restoration and conservation, representation and communication, and production of an exhibition. 

You will also have critical, reflective and communication skills that will stand you in good stead for a curatorial career at museums of art, ethnography, design and history, galleries and exhibition spaces or any other cultural institution where research into objects and cultures is central.

What can you do after your Master's degree?
