Art Education

Master of Education in Arts

Since 2000 Willem de Kooning Academy and Codarts have co-operated closely in developing joint courses for their students. A focus point has been in developing modules of multidisciplinary art theory (for teaching the arts in advanced classes in secondary schools) and digital educational material.On this basis, as well as on this fruitful cooperation of long standing, the Master-program has been founded, specifically for the joint classes in multidisciplinary art theory.
This new Master course is a sequel to the BA courses offered by Willem de Kooning Academy and by Codarts, in Art & Design Teacher Training, Education in Music,Education in Dance and Education in Drama.
As of September 4, 2006 Willem de Kooning Academy Hogeschool Rotterdam will start a new Master course Education in Arts, in association with Codarts. It will be a one-year full time course, or two-year in part time (of 60 ECTS), that is oriented towards professional educational practice.

The Master course Education in Arts will train future specialists in education, who will be able to employ innovative and coordinating activities in various sectorsin the field of education in arts. The Master level applies to educational practice both inside and outside the educational system, and within a wider cultural social context. This new Master Education in Arts has a unique profile, thanks to the expertise over long years with multimedia in relation to arts and design.
