Pre-preparation for the courses

The MA in Art History in Rome from Late Antiquity to the Present Programme starts from an advanced level, which requires students to have an adequate background.

In order to get such a common background all students who own a Bachelor degree in disciplinary sectors other than Cultural Heritage and Restauration, Arts and Humanities, Architecture and Design, AFTER pre-assessment evaluation, might be required to consolidate their knowledge in Medieval, Early Modern and Contemporary Art through the individual study of a selected bibliography.
