Programme and Learning Outcomes
The study programme Art and Visual Culture in a Historical Perspective within the Research Master in Historical, Literary and Cultural Studies is an advanced programme for highly qualified students interested in Art History, Visual Culture or Archaeology. The (sub)disciplines covered by this study programme are Greek and Roman Archaeology, Provincial Roman Archaeology, the History of Art and Architecture and Visual Culture. These disciplines function as specialisations from which students make their personal choices.
The Nijmegen programme is unique in its focus on one common object, that is the material construct in its physical, artistic and visual qualities, seen from the perspectives of three different disciplines. The study programme specialized in Art and Visual Culture aims at developing disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge and skills that enable students to undertake independent scientific research in the fields of History of Art, Archaeology or Visual Culture at an international level.
The subjects and approaches taught in the courses are enhanced by the expertise of the researchers participating in the programme. This expertise represents the strong scholarly traditions based in the Radboud University, thus constituting a stimulating learning environment for the fields of Art and Visual Culture. Under the supervision of a tutor, students may specialise in almost any aspect of art, visual and material culture, within almost any historical period.
