This course is a two-year part-time master developed for working professionals in the field of art and design education (secondary, vocational, higher art and design education, museum education).

The program explicitly connects theory and practice, focusing on contemporary issues, which span different practices and discourses: education, pedagogy, art, design, cultural theory, digital cultures (maker education), philosophy, museum education and other experimental pedagogical practices. Participants are encouraged to reflect upon their position and teaching methodologies within social and cultural contexts, and are offered a close insight in the newest developments in contemporary art and design education. The program is taught in English and accepts both students from the Netherlands and within the EU.

How can educators help to define the role of art and design in society? Which pedagogical methodologies are appropriate for specific audiences and contexts? How do developments such as 'the educational turn in art' influence gallery education? Can art education help children grow up to become self-confident and emancipated adults? How does education adapt itself to a changing society and cultural environment? These are but a few of the questions that are at the core of the Master Education in Arts program.
