The Amsterdam School of the Arts has deliberately opted for a couple of supra-faculty research groups that are directly in line with the goal that the school sets itself: to prepare students for a career in the arts as creative or performing artists or teachers. The research groups provide a strong impulse to the interaction between the state of the art in artistic practice and the teaching and research policy of the school and of the individual faculties.

In the last few years, new lecturers have been appointed to further strengthen the master degree education of the AHK. This is consistent with the ambition of the school to provide quality education in all arts disciplines at master degree level.
