Q&A on the coronavirus for newly admitted students

Courses, assignments, and examinations within the programme are designed to develop the student’s ability to communicate art historical research through a range of media, such as academic articles, conference papers, and exhibitions. The programme has a pronounced international profile and English is the main language in lectures and seminars. As a student on the programme, you are also encouraged to locate and specify elements of the education, such as electives and internship abroad. The teachers and supervisors will assist you in developing networks, as well as to participate in international conferences and workshops. The theoretical and empirical subject matters treated in the courses are also characterised by international and global perspectives.

Opportunities to individually customise 

Within the frame of the programme, there are opportunities to individually customise the education, i.e. through electives. Together with your supervisor, you develop an individual curriculum; a plan that is updated each semester.
