Beginning with 450 BC, students study the history of Classicism, both as a stylistic and a structural process. Starting with Greece, Rome and the Byzantine world, students explore classical revivals of the Renaissance and Neo-classicism, to the Eclectic and Romantic Classicism of the 19th century and on to the various forms the style has taken in the 20th century. A variety of design aspects are also investigated, including urban planning, architecture, interior design and the applied arts.
