Details of program The program is divided into the Master program (generally in the 7th and 8th semesters) and the final phase (generally in the 9th and 10th semesters). The Master program consists of three advanced modules and art history electives. Each advanced module encompasses a lecture and a master seminar. The art history elective requirement can be met by attending specially labeled courses at the Institute of Art History, regardless of the student's main subject area or the type of course in question. The art history electives are designed to expand the student's knowledge in specific areas. The advanced modules and the art history elective courses include performance checks at the end of the courses. The final phase of the program consists of a subject field module that encompasses a lecture, a master seminar and a research colloquium. This module also concludes with a performance check. Lectures and master seminars in at least two of the five subject areas must be completed during both phases of the program. Excursions and internships are designed to enhance empirical research skills. The Master program in Art History (major) is concluded with a master thesis and an examination in "Advanced Art History".
