Arts and formalisms, 7.5 credits

About the education

This course aims to provide in-depth knowledge of the meaning of various formalisms, as well as principally important criticisms made against them. Formalisms have emerged in a broad field between aesthetics and science. Historically, musical aesthetic formalism was pioneering, but the formalisms that have developed in connection with other art forms display not only similarities but also differences. The course is centred on a selection of classics from different areas, with a focus on common key themes and approaches, as well as differences in approach and ideology.

Area of interest: Arts and Humanities

How are different cultures created and how do they affect us? Arts and Humanities is an area of interest that includes a wide variety of subjects such as Archaeology, Philosophy, History, Religion, Ethnology, Literature, and Theatre and Performance Studies. In one way or another these subjects are an expression of how culture affects human beings and society. As a student you will improve your analytical skills and learn to identify different lines of development, often in an interdisciplinary context.

Studies within Arts and Humanities give you broad general competence that is very useful in the job market, where autonomy, analytical and communication skills are in great demand.
