The program will not offer admission in 2022. We are currently working on being able to launch the program in the autumn of 2023 – information about the next admissions round will be published on this site when it is available. For further information, please contact study counselor Richard Carlsén,

The programme provides you with knowledge and skills for activities and work in the international Art History field with a clear focus on the museum world and the art market. The programme has an international profile with English as the language of instruction as well as international teacher competence. You develop your ability to understand and apply professional practices regarding logistics, economics, law and administration that is applied in museums or other institutions where early modern art is handled.

The teaching is largely in direct contact with the studied material: in the university's art collection, in the laboratory, in archives and in museums. The courses within the programme are theoretical and pragmatic with elements of laboratory work, instrument management, analysis of technical results, knowledge about reconstruction and understanding of collections and museum management.
