The Master's programme in Art History and Archaeology is part of the Research Master's Degrees in Archaeology and in Arts and Culture. One of the aims of the programme is to develop an awareness of the academic responsibilities towards our cultural heritage; the programme gives you the tools to deal with these responsibilities in a proper way and translate them into research and exhibitions.
This Master's degree offers a two-year programme in the theory and methodology of material culture and landscape studies. All subjects are approached from multiple perspectives. Part of the programme is compulsory for all students. Of course, you will also choose a specialization: Archaeology, Art, Architecture or Landscape.
In the first year, you will attend two seminars that focus on the historical background of the interaction between archaeology and art. In these seminars, you will also look into perspectives on the nature and representation of cultural landscapes. Your focus for the rest of the year will be on your specialization.
In the second year, you will spend time researching a subject in the area of your field of interest. You will finish the programme by writing a thesis.
