Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will acquire a high level of creativity and entrepreneurship so as to be able to design and manage cultural projects in arts education, in the school system, and other social institutions. They will be aware of and be able to effectively use the conventions found in professional papers on educational research and innovation in visual arts. The programme will provide students with the ability to distinguish and apply different methodological approaches in a research project on cultural practices in different social contexts. Students will also be able to develop teaching materials in different types of media about education in visual art as well as critically interpret prevailing models and values in the different systems of visual communication.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
