The course aims to provide students, according to the Dublin Descriptors for the Master's degree (Second cycle - European Qualification Framework Level 7), with adequate knowledge and understanding of works of art, through exegesis and critical interpretation of their sources (1° Descriptor).
At the end of the course, the student must be able to:
- demonstrate, by applying knowledge and understanding, to be able to independently solve the interpretation of different kinds of written sources coming from various linguistic and cultural areas, and be able to contextualize them in their historical milieu (2° Descriptor)
- handle complexity of judgements and information on the artistic activity and on its different actors (3° Descriptor);
- communicate clearly and unambiguously by using the specialized terminology (4° Descriptor);
- improve the ability to study independently and to analyze critically the sources, through the methodology research in art history (5° Descriptor).
The threshold learning minimum outcomes are the student's ability to recognize different kinds of sources through the analysis of their special characters and instructive potential, by applying critical interpretation and a proper research methodology.
