1. Knowledge and understanding: master's students must achieve specialized knowledge and understanding of the reading of images and the historical and contextual processes of their formation. They will have to reach the mastery of the basic knowledge related to the identification of works and artists in their time, school, territory, knowing how to evaluate quality and relationships, comparisons with similar and different works, finally reach a mature ability to read the works, characterizing the context .

Students acquire this knowledge through the attendance of lectures,  classroom exercises led by the teacher and through the study of the exam texts, as well as through participation in seminars and, if possible, visits to exhibitions and museums.
