The University of Groningen offers you classes in ancient art, modern and current art, architecture and town planning, and the history of the landscape. The emphasis is on the Italian Renaissance and the Flemish Primitives, media art and art theory, medieval buildings and 19th and 20th-century cities, and the history of the origins and development of the Dutch and European cultural landscapes. In short, this major contains subjects to everyone’s liking.

The webclass

To get an idea of what it means to study Art History, all four disciplines will be dealt with during this webclass. Almost every week, you can pick the discipline that you would like to make an assignment on. Furthermore, a theme will be discussed every week. Week 1 will be all about learning to look, and week 3 will deal with the identity in art and architecture. All assignments that you’ll be making were developed by students, and resemble assignments and skills that you’ll get during the first year of the major.

Workload and grading

The webclass takes four weeks. Every week, you’ll be spending approximately 3 hours on preparation and making the assignments. By using visual media, texts and interaction with your fellow students and teachers, you’ll go through the assignments. By handing in the assignments on time and receiving a sufficient grade, you’ll earn 10 credithours. If you would like to use this webclass for credits at your own school, you will have to discuss this with your school yourself. For example, you could ask one of your teachers to join the webclass as well, so he or she can evaluate if the webclass’s contents are sufficient for receiving credits.
