Interdisciplinary approach

Your focus during this master's programme will be on the interdisciplinary research that has been conducted on the history of art and architecture from the perspective of artists and architects, including how works of art were produced, the role of patrons and the public, how works of art and buildings evolved in response to changing social and political changes, and the impact of this on the public.
