Art education (teaching art at high school) can be studied in the following three specialised classes (painting and art education with Prof. Michael Munding and fine art and art education with Prof. Jochen Flinzer and as well fine art and art education with Prof. Lena Ziese) and all other classes. In Bavaria art education at high schools counts as two subjects, i.e. teaching another subject is not necessary. Aside from fulfilling general terms of admission, prospective students must hold a school-leaving qualification entitling them to study at a university.
The maximum study period is 14 semesters. Study ends with the semester in which the first state exam was passed (after the 8th semester at the earliest). It comprises the submission of artistic works from the study period, practical exam sections (three different subjects with an examination time of 8 hours), written exam sections (artwork analysis and art history) and oral exam sections (teaching methodology, artistic techniques, art history and an oral exam discussion of the student’s own works).
Eligibility to take the state exam is based on proof of successful completion of various additional courses and a written dissertation (Zulassungsarbeit).
As for all other high school teaching subjects, study of the subject is accompanied by teacher training (twelve hours a week in educational theory and psychology) and practical training (block training during the semester holidays at a school and one semester of practical training in subject didactics during study).
The teacher education examination is part of the first state exam. It consists of a written and oral examination. The second training phase is held in a teacher training school. Admission to the teacher training course carries no entitlement to subsequent appointment.
Teaching training (written and oral examinations) can only be completed at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Institute of Education or Psychology or at the Faculty of Education Science (EWF).
