Art and Design Education

The BA programme focuses on providing a broad field of competences serving as a foundation for teaching in art and design.

In your BA in Art and Design Education, which lasts six semesters, you address art, culture, design, technology and communication in both practical as well as theoretical terms. In different media you acquire your own style of design expression, technical and artisanal skills as well as general theoretical knowledge concerning art and design.

No matter whether in workshops, studios, ateliers or the classroom – in the BA programme the focus of attention is on the quality of the developed products as well as on the design process in itself. At the Institute of Art and Design Education this process is perceived as a space of learning and experience in which you acquire skills and knowledge and a better understanding of communication issues, creative processes and strategies, allowing you to better understand what is at the core of art and design, to acquire new knowledge and define your own attitude towards teaching.

A BA degree entitles you to apply for the Master of Arts FHNW course in Art and Design Education, teaching diploma Secondary School II level (Maturitätsschulen).
