FIRST-YEAR STUDENT OF ART HISTORY
A lot of excursions during the first year
‘I became interested in art history because I was curious about the stories behind works of art. In the first year you learn about artistic movements, artists and their cultural context. The lecturers specialise in a wide range of subject areas. Because it is a small-scale degree programme, you are in close contact with the lecturers and other students. There are a lot of excursions during the first year and it’s great to see in real life what you learned about in class! I recommend joining Meander, the study association, which organizes lectures, excursions and get-togethers all year round. Groningen is a fantastic place to live and study.’

Architecture, urban planning and landscape
We teach the history of architecture and urban planning from the Middle Ages down to the present day. You learn how cities evolved and explore the relations between architecture and the visual arts. You study architecture as a social phenomenon and visit urban planning projects in the Netherlands and abroad. Excursions are even more essential to the study of landscapes, which are explored as part of the Northern European landscape, from the prehistoric period up to now. History of landscape includes the study of country houses, gardens, and the design of agricultural and natural environments. Its interdisciplinary and emphasises landscape policy.
Our lecturers are international specialists in their fields. We have a focus on Italy and the Netherlands and the global impact of Renaissance and Baroque art. In modern art, the emphasis lies on Europe and the U.S. in the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries. We have a special focus on material and visual culture, on artistic production and the history and social significance of museums. The Groningen Bachelor’s degree programme offers a combination of historical, theoretical and practice-based courses, and the lecturers work closely with experts in the field. Students thus meet professionals and see how art history is applied from the very outset.

ARCHITECTURE, URBAN PLANNING AND LANDSCAPE
Our Art History programme is unique because it combines the history of art, architecture, and landscapes and explores the relationships between objects, buildings, and the natural environment. We do that inside and outside of the classroom, always taking you where the art works are.
