We teach our students how to talk and write about art and architecture in an informed, meaningful, and inspired way. Students appreciate our BA and MA courses for their small-scale, student-centered approach. Next to invaluable, fundamental knowledge about canonical art works and artists, combined with the specific skills of the art historian, such as visual analysis, materials and techniques, iconography and terminology and a thorough grasp on European languages, we foster a thematic approach, putting art and architecture in larger, societal contexts. Thorough art theoretical knowledge and reflection is embedded in the palpable context of art making, conservation and presentation. Enabling students to experience and work with originals, they partake in many national and international excursions, including Rome, Florence, London, Berlin or New York.

To support students in their future careers as art historical professionals, architectural historians and experts in the urban sciences, we offer internships in close collaboration with local, national and international institutions, and regularly invite professionals to co-teach and share their expertise.
