Definition of the field of studies

The art education curriculum concentrates on the role of visual and sensual perception, of art and culture in both past and present. The relationship between scientific theories and art, culture and education is of special importance.


The course is divided into two study sections. In the first study section students have to study the subjects didactics and school practice, academic subjects (history of art, media theory, architectural and environmental design), arts practice in a studio (painting, art design or sculpture) as well as courses at the department for teacher education, and do a teaching practice. The second study section covers the subjects of didactics and teaching practice (art education theory and didactic models, methods of art teaching, etc.), academic subjects (seminar in art studies, contemporary art, art experience and aesthetics in everyday life), arts practice in a studio (painting, art design, sculpture or new media) and a teaching practice. In one of the study subjects a scientific diploma project must be written.
