The study history of art is for you, seeking clarification on these issues and for those who want to work with art and visual culture many forms - from antiquity to the present day.

The key to the program is the dissemination of art. In all subjects in art history you come to work analytically to describe, understand and disseminate images, their meaning and context they are in. This will take you to develop your skills of reasoning and communication.
