interaction of artistic codes"
Format: Three-year graduate program, divided into two stages: preparation
of a dissertation and Masters' exams (1st - 3rd semesters); Candidate of
Sciences exams and preparation for the defense of a Candidate of Sciences'
thesis (4th - 6th semesters).
- The first three semesters are intended to fill possible gaps in the
students' knowledge of art history in the following fields: historiography
of art, source study, bibliography, analytical techniques in art history,
the interdisciplinary approach to art. In the first year 80% of the course
is made up of compulsory lecture courses, seminars and workshops.
- In the third semester DAH students begin working on individual
themes of study, select an academic supervisor, study literature on their
chosen theme, and start conducting preliminary research. At the same time,
they continue to attend lectures (although considerably fewer than in
previous semesters), select a minimum of three special courses from a
total of eight options, and start working in research seminar groups that
correspond with their particular discipline. The main focus of the seminars
is upon the group discussion of sections and chapters of academic works
and dissertations. As a result of participation in the research seminars,
students should be able to write an academic piece on their chosen theme,
which constitutes a fundamental part of the Masters degree.
- From the fourth semester to the end of the course students
may attend lectures and seminars (for new generations of students) of
their choice. Students of the DAH participate in interdepartmental seminars
on the issues of the interdisciplinary study of cultural codes: "Code
- society - culture. Understanding/misunderstanding."
- Like all EUSPb students, students of the DAH attend courses and sit
mid-term and final examinations in the following: English, and basic IT
and using the Internet.
- The study process concludes with preparation for the defense of a
