The Bachelor's programme in Art History offers a combination of historical, theoretical, and practical-based courses in which the international faculty collaborates with experts in the field.

You are introduced to the professional field from the beginning. Art historians study artworks on-site. You will therefore go on excursions to Florence in your first year and to a large European metropolis like Berlin, London, or Vienna in your third year.


In the first year, you will be introduced to important works in the history of art from Classical Antiquity to Rembrandt, from Michelangelo to Mondrian, and Warhol to Ai Weiwei. From Gothic churches to Rietveld and Rem Koolhaas, from Italian gardens to the Dutch polder landscape.

You learn everything about the most important artistic periods and movements, you take courses in visual analysis, iconography, and materials and techniques. Fridays are usually reserved for excursions and you visit Florence for two weeks in the winter.

In your second year, you gain more insight in art- historical methods and art theory, and you focus on specific questions or a specific period. You also learn about the application of art history in society. You are introduced to the relevant art-historical institutions, from art academies, museums, galleries, and restoration studios to auction houses, and cultural heritage institutions.

The first semester of the third year is reserved for your elective.

After you have finished your elective, you go on a field trip to a major art or architectural metropolis, like Berlin, London, Vienna, or Brussels. You finish your program with a thesis on a topic of your own choosing. You acquire the skills necessary for the job market in all of your classes.
