Masters degrees are more versatile than doctoral qualifications and have a broad range of professional and academic applications. According to the U.S. Department of Education, three types of masters programs exist research, professional, and terminal. The most popular masters degree types are Master of Arts (M.A.) and Master of Science (M.S.) in a mixture of subject fields.

The four-semester Master’s degree programme Moving Cultures – Transcultural Encounters / Cultures en movement – rencontres transculturelles / Culturas en movimiento – encuentros transculturales (Moving Cultures) is a four language programme of study which deepens the culture and literary-science core competencies acquired in an English, Romance language or comparable Bachelor degree programme and connects these with an interdisciplinary perspective on phenomena of cultural contact within the anglophone, francophone and Spanish-speaking world.

The Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage programme will introduce you to the theory and practice of conservation.

Our curricula combine theory with practice and humanities with science.

The conservator-restorer

Explore Europe’s history and culture from a global perspective

In this program, we examine the role of culture in shaping past and present. We explore what culture is. We learn about the history of ideas and social practices, study how people use history today, apply cultural theories, and explore the formation of social identities and heritage.

The historians in the program are specialists in the fields of empire, public history, race, media history, history of the body, intellectual history, heritage studies and digital humanities. We bring our academic expertise into classroom discussions.

The scope of the program is Europe in a global setting. We use transnational and comparative approaches to our topics. We ensure there is a balance between the theory and practice of cultural history and heritage through the combination of courses, internships, and thesis. Students put theory into practice in their internships. Some choose internships at leading cultural history institutions while others select research-based internships working on cutting-edge projects with Utrecht researchers. Whichever option you choose, you will experience the challenges of being a historian in a changing society. Your internship experience should be connected to the research you do for your thesis, which is the product of a rigorous and rewarding process.... [-]
