Research on Arts Education
The doctoral education aims at providing a comprehensive scientific education that also provides a good preparation for such tasks in society where knowledge of aesthetic forms of expression with a focus on educational science is of value.
The education focuses on the relationship between practice in subject areas such as visual arts, music, sloyd, dance, drama, theatre, etc. as well as media-neutral aesthetic activities and teachers’ and students’ teaching and learning within these areas of knowledge in the Swedish primary and secondary schools as well as in upper secondary school. The education is designed to explore the teaching profession's didactics (the didactic of teacher) in aesthetic forms of expression.
At the 2020 call for proposals, the only fully financed place of study as a doctoral student is emphasised on applicants in the fields of music, theater and dance, with location at HSM - Academy of Music and Drama. Applicants with salary funded by their school principal are welcome to apply for additional study places at HSM, but also in the fields of visual arts and sloyd at the Academy of Design and Crafts. Please note that certificate from employer in such cases must be attached. The studies are mainly held in Swedish.
