The university master's degree in Interdisciplinary Education of the Arts focuses on the study of − and analytical experimentation with − forms of artistic expression, cultural products and activities linking two or more artistic disciplines that are normally addressed separately in school curricula and initial teacher training. The aim is to highlight the importance of interdisciplinarity in contemporary culture and its relevance to educational innovation.
The principle objective of the course is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to conduct detailed examinations of the artistic endeavours, forms of expression and artistic products found in contemporary society, with a view to carrying out effective professional work as cultural mediators.

The course also provides suitable training to holders of teaching and education degrees or related studies who wish to improve their teaching skills in the areas of artistic expression and communication, providing access to doctoral programmes in these fields.

The master's degree in Interdisciplinary Education of the Arts is taught by the Faculty of Education but is not intended solely for future teachers and educators; it is also suitable for students with previous qualifications in arts disciplines, including philology, fine arts, humanities, audio-visual communication and music sciences.

Learning objectives

This master's degree marks a shift towards a new perspective on integration, examining different forms of cultural expression in depth, particularly those created for children and young people. The specific objectives are:

  • To look more closely at the theoretical and practical aspects of the relationship between visual, musical and literary languages.

  • To examine the use of methodological, conceptual and research models in art that can be applied to the analysis of educational practice.

  • To look more closely at specific curricular and didactic possibilities facilitated by forms of artistic expression.

  • To examine the criteria for assessing the characteristics and potential of cultural offerings for children and young people.

  • To give students a level of professional competence that facilitates the effective planning of school and out-of-school artistic and cultural activities.

  • To impart the educational skills that students will need to work effectively in the initiatives and activities of cultural institutions and organizations.

  • To build on the students' basic training in communication and artistic expression.

  • To illustrate the significant relationship between the degree content and cultural-social demand.

  • To serve as an introduction to research in the arts, based on a paradigm of cultural and educational interdisciplinarity.
