The Degree in History of Art provides knowledge on the development of art and its contribution to the history of culture throughout time and today, on the creative processes and reception of a work of art, as well as on the conservation, management and promotion of historical-artistic heritage.

Thanks to a general training that ensures fundamental concepts are acquired, as well as practical training that enables the necessary skills and abilities to be achieved (collecting and interpreting relevant data on the area under study, handling essential sources and information technologies, undertaking comprehensive analyses of works of art, carrying out core inventory and cataloguing tasks, understanding, speaking and writing in English, etc.), this programme prepares students for professional practice in the different areas, duties and activities of art historians and for those who so wish, taking specialised postgraduate training.
