Art Education

Art Education (Teaching degree)

Elementary school, middle school, secondary school

You enjoy creative art, artistic expression and working with children and young people? As an art teacher you work at the meeting point of people and art and teach in-depth knowledge and enjoyment of art and visual everyday culture.

What is the degree program about?

Art education has the potential to foster students’ creativity and to help them develop an individual identity through their engagement with art and culture. Today, we are always surrounded by images that we pass through in our everyday lives in magazines, advertising, the press, and the digital media. Understanding visual content and communicating in images are key competencies that can develop through exposure to visual art and visual culture.

In the Art Education teaching degree program at FAU, you will receive a broad subject and didactic foundation. In addition to working on your own artistic practice, the program focuses on questions of teaching and developing the artistic and creative skills of children and adolescents. Art-historical contents as well as the examination of contemporary art complement the study of art education.
