Students may focus on artworks, buildings, urban environments, landscapes, archeological settlements, artefacts and ecofacts.
After having followed a partly shared programme in the first year, students choose for a specialization track in one of the disciplines just mentioned. Students are made thoroughly familiar with the most up-to-date theories, methods and techniques with which to study the themes and problems they wish to tackle.
