The bachelor's programme aims to guide students towards an 'autodisciplinary' art practice: students acquire the skills, research methods and conceptual background necessary to develop their personal artistic niche within the broad field of the arts and sciences.
A considerable part of the education offered at ArtScience is practice-based: knowledge is acquired in the context of conceiving and realizing projects. In these projects students work together with the teachers and mostly together with other students, not for the teachers and alone. A solid theoretical and practical basis is offered in the courses. Because of the open curriculum and the individual study trajectories this implies, students develop a strong sense of independence, self-organization and critical thought during the study. Because many study projects are presented outside of the school walls, the students are expected to be already active and well-connected in the field at the time of their final exam.
The students are challenged to develop a range of professional competencies regarding three domains:
A. The artistic-technical domain;
B. The professional world;
C. The theoretical domain;
Within each of these domains students are expected to develop competencies within these areas:
2. Critical reflection;
3. Innovation and growth;
6. Relating to the environment;
These competencies are the basis of the evaluation by the teachers at the end of each course module and they are also used to evaluate the presentations at the end of each semester. In turn, twice a year an evaluation meeting is held for the students to evaluate the programme and suggest improvements.
