Double Degree programme in collaboration with Leiden University

As of the academic year 2017-2018, students of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) will be able to combine their bachelor Fine Art programme with the bachelor Arts, Media and Society at Leiden University.

BA Fine Art students at the KABK will be able to simultaneously obtain a BA in Art History, through the Arts, Media and Society programme at Leiden University as of the academic year 2017-2018. A number of selected Fine Art students will undertake the Double Degree programme as of September and upon successful completion of the four-year trajectory they will receive both a bachelor’s degree from KABK and a bachelor’s degree from Leiden University.

The goal is to educate students to develop the necessary skills in order to take the role of the arts and the artists to a new level, as indispensable contributors to the wellbeing of our societies in culture, policies and economies.

The Double Degree is one of the many initiatives emerging from the longstanding and fruitful relationship between Leiden University and the University of the Arts, The Hague (Royal Academy of Art and Royal Conservatoire) via the Leiden University Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA), where artistry and academia meet at the highest level.
