Honours Programme
Theory and Research

ArtEZ practice-oriented Bachelor’s courses frequently have only limited space for theory and research. However, more and more students are wanting to invest extra energy in expanding their theoretical knowledge and skills. The Honours Programme provides a first-rate opportunity to do this.


The Honours Programme is a two-year curriculum that supplements the Bachelor’s course. Motivated students of all disciplines may attend it. This multidisciplinary programme offers not only the chance to study theory in-depth but also the possibility to conduct research in the field of your chosen course. In this way, students develop an investigative attitude, acquire substantial intellectual baggage and strengthen their interdisciplinary focus.


A selection of research projects by students who graduated from the Honours Programme in 2013, is available in the online ArtEZ Finals Magazine.
