European and Asian Art History

The degree program European and Asian Art History, which is taught in German and English, equips students with research-oriented, interdisciplinary knowledge in the two adjacent academic fields of European Art History and Oriental and Asian Art History. The curriculum is supplemented by courses in the area of provenance research. Provenance research is understood as trans-disciplinary context research, which indicates the diversity of the values ascribed to art and cultural objects in various social constellations and by individuals.

As central competencies, students develop in-depth knowledge of art history across various geographic regions and epochs, methodological autonomy in the cultures of various specialized fields and intercultural transfer knowledge. In particular, they expand their skills with regard to analysis processes and art-history methodology. Students can set thematic priorities for the following areas: current research questions (genres and media, art historical classification and criticism), colloquiums/personal project and practical experience. 

Possible lines of work:

Exhibitions (curator work, guided tours), culture (administrative specialist at cultural institutions, municipal cultural affairs offices), museums/monument preservation/art dealing (galleries, auction houses), public relations, insurance (appraisals, claims settlement), tourism (municipal art/cultural museums, cultural tourism guide/program development), academia (research management, teaching/research at a university or research institution)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
