Overview

Since the conservation of artistic heritage requires a well-rounded education involving an in-depth knowledge of artistic phenomena, this programme provides you with a thorough familiarity with the history of art and artistic techniques from the Middle Ages to the modern day while enabling you to choose a specialisation based on your own personal interests.

Educational activities, often taking the form of interactive seminars, equip you to carry out rich analyses of focused aspects of the history of art.

The programme also gives you the opportunity to discover and gain experience in important cultural institutions through internships. And thanks to the skills the programme provides, you will be able to assume positions of responsibility in cultural heritage studies, conservation and management contexts, as well as in cataloguing, cultural event/exhibition organisation and the design of cultural and educational activities.
