The programme is concluded with a master's thesis of 9 credits that mainly tests the integration of all competences.
The master's thesis consists of an artistic pedagogical research project (APO) that is carried out in a collective of 4 to 5 students in cooperation with the broad field of work, mainly based on practical study, design-based principles, social learning and action research. You will be coached in this already from the first year.
For APR, each collective starts from one of the following themes:
Sustainability - Inclusion - Cross-domain
The research project will be linked to one of the three themes and will arise from a practical experience, curiosity, anecdote and/or challenge in the education and/or arts education sector. Each collective can determine its own working method and will be coached during all the steps.
Each collective makes a magazine in which the process and the accompanying results are processed. This magazine is made annually and distributed in the broad working field.
