Target Group

We offer this program to advanced bachelor and master students from the fields of Art History / Visual Studies, Archaeology and the Fine Arts.

Lectures, presentations and guided tours will be held in English. Even though we do not require students to submit language test results, we urge students with poor language skills to abstain from applying. Knowledge of German is not a prerequisite.

Note: This course aims to introduce students to an international and interdisciplinary study of history, art history and cultural history. By exploring court life and culture from diverse points of view, students will become acquainted with a range of aspects of the daily life of princes, servants and artists and better understand the background of the works of art studied in more conventional art history classes. Part of the final grade will also initiate students to useful research methods.
