The primary subjects of the study programme in the art history are the fine arts (architecture, sculpture, painting/graphics, arts and crafts). Unlike the direct practising of art itself, the aim of history of art is the chronological and geographical classification of works of art and their interpretation from aspects of history, aesthetics, style criticism, sociology, economics and psychology. The bachelor programme is roughly divided into two sectors:                           
1. history of art from late antiquity to about 1700                                      
2. history of art from 1700.                                                                         

The consecutive master programme expands the basic knowledge acquired on the bachelor programme in relation to the art history subjects and their methodological development. With differentiation between the fields of “Architecture and Urbanistics“ and “Pictorial Arts“, students can choose a specialisation subject with a view to their future occupation and this will provide with its research orientation the necessary flexibility for current real-world issues.
