Art Education

Subject Art for secondary schools


In Bavaria, the subject of art education at secondary schools is scored twice, i.e. a minor subject is not required.
In addition to the general admission requirements, the general university entrance qualification is required.

The maximum duration of study is 14 semesters. The study program ends with the semester in which the first state examination is successfully completed (at the earliest after the 8th semester). The State Examination is conducted in accordance with § 71 LPO I (in the currently valid version). It consists of the presentation of artistic works from the study period, practical examination parts (drawing, human and environment), written examination parts (work analysis and art history, art didactics) and the presentation of one's own works (Staatsexamenskoje).

The artistic studies can be completed in any free artistic class of the Academy. For admission to the state examination, proof of successful participation in various additional courses must be provided and a written term paper (Zulassungsarbeit) must be written.

As in the case of the teaching professions of all other subjects at the grammar school, the subject studies are accompanied by educational science studies (amounting to 35 ECTS), which are concluded with a separate state examination. The pedagogical internships (internship during the semester break at a school and a one-semester internship in subject didactics) are part of your subject-related studies at the AdBK. More details at:
The second training phase takes place at a seminar school.


From winter semester 2024/25, the academy will offer a shortened form of the course for visual artists in addition to the regular art education course. The qualification program prepares students for the first state examination for the teaching profession at grammar schools in the double subject of art within five semesters. 

A prerequisite for admission to the qualification program is proof of a degree in fine arts or fine arts from a domestic or foreign art academy or academy, which must not have been completed more than 10 years ago.

* The educational science studies can only be completed at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Institute of Education or Psychology, Bismarckstraße 1, 91054 Erlangen, or at the Faculty of Education (EWF) at Regensburger Str. 160, 90478 Nuremberg.
