Education and Activities for RMa Students
OSK offers research master-students in Art Studies a comprehensive educational programme, which combines broad overviews of our field with in-depth research and methodological approaches.
Students will become familiar with current theory and research in Art History and with the various approaches that are practiced. Furthermore, by participating in the OSK programme RMa-students will be able to meet national and international experts in our field, as well as fellow RMa-students and PhD researchers. OSK closely cooperates with several art museums in the Netherlands and organizes annual courses in Florence, Rome and Paris. Becoming a member of OSK therefore offers you the possibility of creating an extended network in the field of Art History.
Every year the OSK organizes a series of seminars on specialised art historical themes, offered as Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer Schools. Each of them consists of one week to ten days of intense teaching and site visits, accompanied by introductory meetings some weeks before and papers to be delivered afterwards. Each is rewarded with 6 ECTS. RMa students have to select two of these courses as a compulsory part of their teaching programme.
Obtaining EC at OSK
RMa students who are members of OSK can participate free of charge in the educational programme for up to 12 EC in two years. After successfully participating in a course the student will receive a certificate from OSK, which can be exchanged for credit at the local Graduate School. Access to courses or master classes for students who are not members of OSK is only possible in exceptional cases. The coordinator and course manager will decide per case if individual request can be honoured.
