The Doctorate in Art History and Musicology approaches two extensive research areas and aims at providing students with sufficient expertise to conduct their own research on relevant aspects belonging to the area of art history and musicology, which is expected to culminate in the successful presentation and defence of a doctoral dissertation.
Taking the knowledge acquired through the study of undergraduate and master’s degrees as a starting point, students are expected to develop the appropriate intellectual skills for the critical discussion of their research and to be able to translate their work into the different scientific communication genre, both oral and written.
In the area of art history, advanced research includes both the synchronic and/or diachronic perspectives, and the different theoretical approaches. The part devoted to musicology will mainly be devoted to the training of experts in historical musicology. In both branches, the goal is to provide expert training equal to that provided by other doctoral curriculums at the national and international levels.
The Doctorate in Art History and Musicology is especially aimed at licentiates and graduates who have completed master’s degrees in one or more of the following fields:
- Art history
- History and sciences of music
- Fine arts
- Philosophy (Aesthetics)
- Translation and documentation
- Audio-visual communication
- Licentiate or undergraduate degrees equivalent or related to the areas of arts, humanities or social sciences followed by a master’s degree related to the research areas mentioned above.
Students whose native language is not Spanish must prove adequate command of the Spanish language by presenting an official certificate (at least B2 or equivalent).
