Department of Visual Arts Education

Visual arts teacher education programs:

The Department of Visual Arts Education offers two teacher education programs. One is a 5-year education for students who want to become teachers at upper secondary level, with Visual Arts as main subject and Media or Design as second subject.  The other is a 4 ½ -year education to become teacher at secondary level, with Visual Arts, Sloyd (Crafts) and a third subject which you read at e.g. Stockholm University. During the education the studies of Art/Media, Art/Design or Art/Sloyd are mixed with Core Educational Subjects which include pedagogics and didactic studies, and Internship at schools.

The programs lead to a Degree of Bachelor of Education. All teaching is in Swedish and educate for the Swedish school system. It is therefore required that you master Swedish or another Scandinavian language in order to follow the program.

Courses in Visual Arts Education: Higher education courses and continuing professional development courses are also offered at the department.
