The main objective of the Degree in History of Art is to provide a broad training by means of a global and critical knowledge of all of the areas related to artistic production, different artistic movements throughout history and the social reception of art. This means preparing the student for professional practice with a specific training in the history of art, which, in turn, will enable them to enter the workforce successfully.
The theoretical subject areas incorporate practical blackboard exercises, analyses of historical texts and complementary activities that aid studying and comprehension and contribute towards the student’s overall grade.
Students have the chance to carry out optional external internships (for 6 credits), which will allow them to get closer to one of the professions related to the history.
The History, History of Art and Geography and the Environment degrees have the same academic pathway in the fourth year. This pathway is made up of 30 optional credits and is aimed at those who wish to take the Master’s Degree in Secondary Education Teaching.
