Course content
The state examination consists of three parts. The main part comprises the interpretation of a text by an architect. The second part comprises a discussion over some of the ten chosen monographs on architects, architectonic styles or period within the scope of the entire history of architecture. The third part comprises the defined topics from the history of architecture. The first part is decisive because it is supposed to prove the ability of independent elaboration on a detected problem in the theoretical text and the ability to find alterantive solutions to the problem. The two remaining parts are only used to make the grade more accurate. In a number of consultations, the candidate has an opporunity, especially as concerns the first part, to build on his/her previous shorter workshop papers and he/she can, subject to agreement, also focus on topics completely new to him/her in accordance with his/her specialisation and interest, for example, with regard to the graduation thesis.

Learning outcomes
The final state examination consists of three parts. The main part is the interpretation of a text (monographs) from the theory of art or an artist's authorial text. The second part consists of discussions of some of the chosen texts (monographs) about art, artistic movements or periods in the scope of its entire history. The third part consists of some set topics from the history of fine art. The first part is decisive because it is supposed to prove the ability to develop a found problem independently in the theoretical text and the ability to find variants of its solution. The other two parts serve only to clarify the classification. The candidate has an opportunity to build on their previous knowledge and work in a number of consultations, primarily in the first part, and after agreement they can also focus on completely new topics for them in agreement with their special focus and interest with regard to their own master's thesis.
To independently process a wider architecture-based themes.
