Are you fascinated by art, architecture and landscapes? Are you curious about the meaning, history, and impact of art, architecture, and landscapes? Then Art History is your program.
The Department of History of Art, Architecture and Landscape in Groningen is unique because it combines the ecologically informed study of the visual arts, urbanism, architectural history and the history of landscapes. It examines the relationships between artwork, city and landscape and relates them to their respective environments. Our bachelor program offers a combination of historical, theoretical, and practice-based courses in which our international faculty collaborates with distinguished experts and leading institutions. You are introduced to the professional world from the beginning. Because art historians study objects, buildings and landscapes in context. You will therefore go on an excursion abroad to a large European metropolis like Berlin, London, or Florence. The Department also organizes many excursions in the Netherlands.
