About this program
Master's Program in Dance Pedagogy
The Master's Program in Dance Pedagogy combines critical thinking, artistic-pedagogical practices and exploration of the wide range of meanings in the arts.
In the Master's Program in Dance Pedagogy, art pedagogy is seen as a form of artistic activity where pedagogical questions are ever-present. In the context of art pedagogy, art, performance and teaching are viewed as encounters where aesthetic, ethical and political phenomena are intertwined. Art and pedagogy feed off each other, which gives rise to change in both.
The program consists of advanced studies in the arts, studies in the theory and practices of art pedagogy, research studies, teaching practices, international interaction and elective studies that support the development of the student's identity as an art pedagogue.
The goal of the master's program is to train open-minded art pedagogue professionals who have found their own voice, have cooperation skills and are aware of their responsibility.
The degree requirements for Master's Programs in Dance Pedagogy and Theatre Pedagogy include pedagogical studies for teachers (60 cr). Tampere University is in charge of the study module in pedagogy as a whole.
