Doctoral Studies: The research on arts education

Research on arts education has a focus primarily on didactic, as well as political, structural and institutional issues in preschool, school or upper secondary school aesthetic activities.

The research concerns both media-specific teaching in the aesthetic subjects of art and crafts and media-neutral aesthetic activities. Doctoral education in the subject aims to provide an all-round scientific education, that also provides good preparation for tasks in society where knowledge of aesthetic forms of expression with a focus on educational science is of value.
