Characteristics of the degree programme:

First-cycle studies are focused on theoretical and practical knowledge of the history of art in general, as well as of Polish art and the art of the region. Students gain the understanding of the phenomena of art history in an interdisciplinary relation to other areas of the humanities. They are sensitive to the issues of the form of a work of art, especially of its artistic quality. They independently form their assessments of the artistic phenomenon. They interpret the works of art in relation to the methodological concepts of the discipline. They gain practical knowledge during a 6-day science camp, apprenticeships and monument tours. The tours are organized individually by lecturers who teach a given subject. Graduates are prepared to undertake basic work in the field of documentation of monuments, exhibitions, art promotion, museology, and art trade. In all areas, the student’s theoretical knowledge is broadened by the ability to analyse the substance of the historic art, culture and technology of the region.

The studies are carried out according to the standards of undergraduate studies in the history of art. Knowledge extended to the phenomena of town planning, the history and art of the region and the protection of industrial cultural heritage is important for students in Upper Silesia. During the diploma seminar, each student presents the concept of their BA thesis, which is an independent research program.
