Double Degree RASL

Double Degree RASL

Rotterdam Arts & Sciences Lab (RASL)

The Double Degree is organised by the Rotterdam Arts & Sciences Lab (RASL). Its mission is to strengthen the artistic profile of Rotterdam by combining artistic and scientific practices in relation to societal challenges. The aim is to incite artistic practices and expand networks in Rotterdam and beyond.

RASL is a platform in which the arts and sciences, students and teachers, education and research meet each other. With room for experimentation, it stimulates new forms of collaboration. The Lab
is characterised by three core elements: double degree, collaborative research and creative learning.

RASL strives to be a catalyst for interdisciplinary research by combining existing and new research fields within the artistic domain. It stimulates innovation in the field of education, both in combining expertise as in the development of new forms of educational practices.

With these programmes, RASL has the ambition to be the premier centre for education in arts & sciences practices in Rotterdam (and beyond).

Double Degree

Do you have an artistic or musical talent, as well as a hunger for academic knowledge? Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), Willem de Kooning Academy and Codarts offer you the possibility to combine theory and practice in a five-year Double Degree programme (300 ECTS). If you follow the RASL program, you will ultimately receive two bachelor degrees: one from EUR (Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science) and one from Codarts or Willem de Kooning Academy (Bachelor of Music or Bachelor of Arts).

For the first time in the Netherlands, you can choose between various complementary, in-depth, and artistic interdisciplinary study paths.

The RASL programme offers you the opportunity to develop your knowledge on an academic level, as well as to develop your artistic skills. After this programme, you will be able to address complex and multidimensional challenges – as you will have what it takes to approach issues from different angles. In addition, your artistic practices will benefit from your theoretical knowledge about the arts, media and culture – and vice versa: your theoretical work is fuelled by your experience as an artist.
