Training to Teach Art at Upper Secondary/Grammar Schools, Lower and Intermediate Secondary Schools and Primary Schools

What is special about the art teacher training programme at Kassel is that you study the subject at an art academy. This means that you study in close contact and exchange, i.e. on an equal footing, with the other students in the Visual Arts and Visual Communication classes. This enables you to become acquainted with, and to learn to pursue, a wide range of aesthetic practice and to set your own focus in the fine and applied areas.

The foundation studies enable you to gain an overview of the possibilities and requirements of the study programme and to begin to develop your own artistic and creative practice. At the same time, you lay initial methodological and scholarly foundations in Art Didactics and in Art History and Theory.

In the main study programme, you choose a specialist Visual Arts or Visual Communication class, where you can set your own focus. This can be supplemented by projects in Product Design. You can, of course, change the specialist class in question in the course of your studies. What is important, in content terms, is that you should develop an up-to-date understanding of art and design and develop your own artistic approach. Workshops in all areas, from wood and ceramics to print technologies through to photography, video and digital media, are available to you to enable you to implement artistic projects.

You also continue your studies in History and Theory of Art, acquiring the foundations for engaging with art and the phenomena of everyday visual culture. Studying to teach art will introduce you to the history, theories and methods of art tuition as well as to children's and adolescents' forms of aesthetic practice and culture. The school teaching practice (subject practical) enables you to infuse your teaching with hitherto acquired knowledge and experience and to test yourself as a teacher.

The entire study programme has a modular structure. Around two thirds of these modules are compulsory, the remaining third consisting of compulsory elective modules in which you can set your own focus.

Study programme duration: at least six semesters to become a teacher at primary schools, at least 7 semesters for lower secondary schools and intermediate secondary schools and at least 9 semesters for upper secondary/grammar schools. The respective study programme is concluded by the First State Examination. There is also the possibility of studying for a doctorate.

An intensive teacher training study programme in Kassel requires a great deal of initiative and critical self-determination, an interest in example-based and project-oriented working and the courage for open debate. In addition, you will need to have an inquisitive eye for cultural movements outside the Kunsthochschule, i.e. the numerous museums, the changing exhibitions, the rich cinema landscape, theatre and music.
