Master of Arts in Fine Arts with Major in Art Teaching (MAT) and an EDK*-certified teaching degree *EDK: Swiss Conference of Cantonal Ministers of Education (Federal Swiss Board of Education)
Artistic projects and aesthetic education in schools
The Major Art Teaching (MAT) equips you to respond with insight and precision to conditions in society today, both through your own art and your art education practices: as an independent artist, art outreach and education worker (e.g. in museums), cultural sector educationalist, teacher of visual/ fine arts to baccalaureate level (Sek II, GSCE “A” level).
Applicants for a Master of Arts in Fine Arts must have gained a Bachelor of Arts or an equivalent qualification in the field of art or design; and Major Art Teaching (MAT) applicants must also have either a recognised baccalaureate or a primary school teaching degree or equivalent qualification. An admission is now possible with a completed vocational baccalaureate without ‹passerelle›.
Admission to the study programme depends, firstly, on the quality of your application and, secondly, on your personal interview with the admission board. You must first submit the Online Application Form
of the University of Lucerne, School of Art and Design, along with a portfolio that attests your artistic qualifications and a brief motivation statement. If these are found suitable, you will be invited to attend an interview.
Portfolio submission and the interview together comprise the Admission Procedure. The Procedure may vary slightly, depending on the study programme.
