Learning outcomes of the learning unit

The MASTERS courses (HAAR0122-2 et HAAR0123-2) are presented as occasional studies on a particular theme for which students' active participation is desired.Ces cours seront donnés en alternant les thématiques grecque et romaine, d'un cours à l'autre, d'une année à l'autre. This consists of developing the fundamental knowledge and methodologies acquired during the three years of the Baccalaureat. 

The aims of learning are research: thorough presentation and critical discussion of an object or argument.

Prerequisite knowledge and skills

None - bearing in mind that the History of Art and Archaeology of Greek-Roman Antiquity is only one element of the indissociable whole of the Sciences of Antiquity (history, philology and the history of religion).

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

For MASTERS students, other than the good habits developed during the years of the Baccalaureat (regular presence in class, analytical work and verification in the library), it is necessary to take a critical approach to the material presented in class. This involves prior preparation of the issues being studied in order to be able to contribute to the discussion and exchange information which has been collated. In some cases, students should also produce regular research and present it to the class. At this level of study, it is indispensable to produce, either individually or in groups, a blibliographical and iconographical database.

An educational trip of one day will be organised to acquire knowledge through contact with the artworks.
