Welcome to the Master of Education in Arts

Managing, coaching and teaching can be different. More flexible, more playful or more interactive, for example. On the Master of Education in Arts, you use your creativity to develop inspiring and innovative didactic concepts. A concept that corresponds with your stakeholders, the objective and you, as a professional. And you can apply that directly in your own professional context. In a game, a tool or a learning line, for example. To get to that point, you think further than your own discipline or traditional educational and learning methods. Choose your own learning path and enter into discussion with professionals in other disciplines. This enables you to expand your network and become a pioneer of educational innovation, within and outside (art) education.
