Leerdoelen Students are able to characterize the main trends, in terms of contents and style, in the history of the arts in the West, against the background of a global context, from prehistory to contemporary culture. Students can critically read and digest scientific literature, and are able to present findings orally and in writing.
Omschrijving This module offers an overview of historical developments in the arts (literature, music, performing arts, visual arts) in the West, from the earliest , ‘prehistoric’ art forms to contemporary art.
