Interdisciplinary Arts

Do you want to be an 'activator' of innovative and artistic concepts which combine business and social issues? Does your imagination go beyond the limits of science and art? Do you think in terms of projects rather than classes? If so, iArts is the answer.

iArts in short

iArts - interdisciplinary Arts Maastricht, is a new international 4 year Bachelor’s programme, which can be done within 3 years. This means it is a very intense, high-density programme for the creative and intelligent multitalented. It builds bridges between fine arts, sciences and society. In the course of the programme you'll work on a series of projects. You'll invent creative and original solutions for current social and cultural issues, in the form of artistic products or artful interventions. During the programme you'll further develop your own direction of artistic and intellectual growth. You'll also learn how to manage your projects professionally and make them financially viable.

This hybrid is a joint programme of the Maastricht Academy of Performing Arts, the Maastricht Academy of Music, the Academy of Fine Arts and Design of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences.

The programme is an exciting cross-over of artistic skills, academic reflection, entrepreneurship and scholarly research. These competencies are fruitfully connected in projects and seminars with a strong focus on today’s societal issues. This makes iArts the first bachelor’s programme in the Netherlands to link interdisciplinarity in fine arts to academic scholarship.

The degree you'll be awarded when you complete the programme successfully is the internationally recognised Bachelor of Arts.
