Art History

Art throughout the ages


BA Art History (in Dutch)

Students of Art History learn how to critically approach and deal with art and art literature. The study programme offers an intensive introduction to art history throughout the ages. Attention is also given to the many aspects of art history, such as iconography, phenomena of imitation, inspiration and art in the Netherlands.
Excursions, both in the Netherlands and abroad (Paris, Florence, Berlin, New York), form a fixed part of the propaedeutic and Bachelor’s curriculum. Art History’s good working relationship with libraries, museums, archives and art academies offers ample opportunities for work placements and excursions.
