DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

The subjects Art and Art Education are taught at Bremen University within the context of a BA programme. Both area programmes are devoted to academic inquiry into historical and contempory artistic products and processes, together with their theoretical and practical analysis and teaching.
The central components comprise the traditional subject areas of the fine arts, encompassing painting, sculpture, drawing, architecture and arts and crafts/design. The geographical focus lies on the Occidental art of Europe and the USA. The field of media receives the same attention on the programme as the classical art genres. Students studying to become teachers (Lehramt) must participate in numerous artistic and medial projects.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

Graduates of Art and Art Education can choose between a number of career opportunities. Among other things, they find employment in the field of culture (exhibitions, museums, art teaching...), in public administration and the preservation of monuments and heritage, art dealing, in the media and tourism. Freuently, supplementary qualifications are required that cannot be covered completely during the course of studies. Among such supplementary competencies are computer skills, knowledge in the areas of public relations, foreign languages, economics and law, as well as pedagogy. Some career aspirations may even necessitate supplementary courses of study, for instance restorer, art dealer, publicist, etc.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

Possibilities for additional qualifications

Graduates qualify for admittance to a Master’s Program

To acquire the qualification to teach at state schools, students must subsequently obtain a Master of Education postgraduate degree (M.Ed). This has to be followed by an 18-month period of practice teaching in school, which ends with the second state exam for teachers in Germany.

Supplementary/optional courses
The Certificate Program Foundation Studies in Digital Media for Education is an optional course for students studying education related subjects.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

Students acquire a comprehensive knowledge of art history and genres, as well as media-specific knowledge of aesthetical products and works of art, how they originate, and the societal contexts within which they relate to other objects, product creations and stagings. The field of Art has a special focus on conditions and perception in artistic production and processes in visual culture, as well as in space and architecture. Students intending to become teachers (Lehramt) are taught skills which enable independent artistic and medial creativity.
