Bachelor of Arts in Art History, Musicology and Theatre Studies

What is the BA in Art History, Musicology and Theatre Studies?

The Bachelor of Arts is a theoretical programme, focusing on three distinct artistic disciplines: history of art and architecture, musicology, and theatre studies. The first year of the three-year programme deals with the canon of Western art history as well as the broader spectrum of the humanities, with courses on philosophy, aesthetics and literature among others. In the following years, the programme evolves towards more specialized courses in which students choose between one of the three main disciplines. Minors are proposed in archaeology, history or literature.
