Comprehensive mentoring by experts in art and education as well as collective projects realised with fellow students, lecturers, and scholars in relevant related disciplines complement the degree programme. Dedicated capacity building for the everyday work of newly qualified teachers, including one-on-one teaching, is core to the Lucerne School of Art and Design’s MAT programme. In comparison to other teacher training programmes, the curriculum here leaves room for ambitious artistic practice as well as theoretical insights into how to transfer practice-based knowledge to the classroom. In addition, in the course of the art education modules, students address questions that arise in the public space or the semi-public space of schools or museums.
In the Lucerne School of Art and Design’s generously equipped Workshops, existing knowledge of the disciplines Digital Skills, Video, Sound, Printing, 3D (Metal, Plastics, Ceramics and Wood) and Photography can be deepened and practical skills further honed. Comprehensive support and guidance from committed well-known artists, art educationalists, and lecturers in Cultural Studies and Art Theory are assured students throughout the degree programme. Additional practical skills are gained through participation in urban interventions, land art projects, and exhibitions of art in public space, through practice-oriented work placements (internships) and research projects, and through specific career-oriented modules.
