ART.Education (Bachelor of Arts)

ART.Education (Bachelor of Arts)

From the winter semester 2021/22, the new bachelor degree in Art Pedagogy will replace the current bachelor degree in ART.Education. Applications for the B.A. in ART.Education are therefore no longer being accepted.

The degree programme ART.Education at the HBK Braunschweig is the right choice for those who want to develop a teaching practice based on an advanced artistic practice for secondary schools. Students will learn how to empower school students to develop personal aesthetic experiences and approaches to art, architecture and design.

The course duration for the Bachelor degree is eight semesters, the majority of which (six semesters) are spent studying Fine Art. In the foundation and specialised classes, students will develop, observe and discuss the results of their work together with students enrolled in the Fine Art degree programme. They will become acquainted with a variety of workshops and techniques and develop their own exhibitions and concepts for art education.

In accompanying seminars in art education and pedagogy, in Art History and Aesthetics, and in Media Studies, students are given the skills they need to engage with the complexity and range of art as a school subject. Internships in schools and museums will give students a chance to experience teaching in real life and can be used as a basis for their own projects.

The accompanying secondary subject (German, English or History) at Technische Universität Braunschweig is a shorter course. Students who successfully complete their secondary subject are awarded a teaching qualification that entitles them to teach classes in this subject up to year 10.

What happens after graduation?
In order to teach Art plus German, English or History at a secondary school in Germany, it is a basic condition that you must first obtain a Bachelor's degree. This permits you to continue on to a Master’s degree in Education and subsequently, to the practical stage of teacher training that is the prerequisite for obtaining full certification as a state-recognised school teacher in Germany.
