Art History Bachelor’s programme
The bachelor’s programme Art History focuses on Fine Art works from past and present cultures. This subject deals with all visually perceptible objects of the Occidental art world as well as art of non-European cultures. In the same way, new media such as photography, film and electronic media are part of the programme. The purpose of Art History is to collect and to connect on an intellectual level with all visually relevant cultural artefacts. Besides monumental studies (architecture, painting, sculpture, new media, etc.) and art development, students acquire comprehensive basic knowledge in the areas of methodology, technology, material science, monumental preservation, museology and exhibition science. Due to the need to classify works within a historical and socio-cultural context, it is imperative that students also learn to work with methods of historical source analysis. The programme provides specialist knowledge required for academic work within this field. This includes the ability to trace the relevant sources and literature, use methodically correct procedures, develop critical judgement and the ability to use subject-specific and interdisciplinary troubleshooting strategies.
Undergraduates of the bachelor’s programme Art History will have acquired basic knowledge of art development, dealing with art objects as well as related theories and methods. They will have developed the ability to engage with this academic subject. They will have acquired profound communicative skills and not only be able to present their knowledge and findings scientifically, but also to talk about them to the general public.
