Institute Arts and Design Education (IADE)

Art and design, and imparting their contents open up new ways of perceiving and shaping the world. Learning in art and design is marked by an intense experience of self-agency and dealing with highly diverse contexts. The Institute of Arts and Design Education is an open community comprising students, life-long learners, practitioners and researchers from a wide range of local and global education environments.

We contextualize the acquired knowledge in the relevant cultural, societal, and educational fields of action.

A BA degree in Arts and Design Education entitles graduates to take up professional work in the socio-cultural field as well as in connection with exhibitions, youth work, off-spaces, and extracurricular course work. The cross-departmental scheme CoCreate is an innovative learning format in which students team up in interdisciplinary project groups to work on topics of high societal relevance. A MA degree in Arts and Design Education / FHNW School of Education Advanced Teaching Diploma entitles graduates to teach at high schools and to engage in research work at a university or a similar educational institution.

The CAS “Kunst kann” (Art can) opens up new perspectives on art, student creativity, and creating together as a team.
