Students in the Theatre Pedagogy programme at the University of the Arts Helsinki reflect on and develop the practices and pedagogy of performing arts within an open, dialogue-oriented community.
You will be provided support for critical, innovative thinking, multidisciplinary interaction, multiartistic collaborations and for adopting an experimental attitude.
The foundation of the programme are students’ personal experiences and perceptions, and they are brought into open dialogue with other students, teachers and the academic field of art pedagogy.
In the Master’s Programme in Theatre Pedagogy, art pedagogy is seen as a form of artistic activity where pedagogical questions are ever-present. In the context of art pedagogy, art, performance and teaching are viewed as encounters where aesthetic, ethical and political phenomena are intertwined.
The programme consists of advanced studies in the arts, studies in the theory and practices of art pedagogy, research studies, teaching practices, international interaction and elective studies that support the development of the student’s identity as an art pedagogue.
The students are encouraged to take risks, make bold choices and to seek new solutions within the framework of the programme’s curriculum. The goal of the master’s programme is to train open-minded art pedagogue professionals who have found their own voice, have cooperation skills and are aware of their responsibility.
