International English Masters for Waldorf Teachers

International English Masters Programme

In September 2019 we are planning our fourth fully accredited International Masters Programme for Waldorf Class and Subject Teachers. At the same time, we will celebrate 100 years of Waldorf pedagogy together with the Waldorfschule Uhlandshöhe with whom we share the premises!

Our International Postgraduate Course for class and subject teachers draws people from all over the world. Students from more than twenty different countries represent the global interest in Waldorf education and the growing need for appropriately trained Waldorf teachers throughout the world. It is wonderful and enriching to observe and participate in international relations developing in a Waldorf context here on our campus in Stuttgart.

Postgraduate Academic Studies

In a full-time course of studies, core elements of Anthroposophy, pedagogical antropology, child and adolescent psychology and subject methodology are combined with an intensive artistic training in music, speech, Eurythmy, painting, drawing and sculpting. In conjunction with practical experience gained in a placement and long-term internships, this training thus offers extensive possibilities for teacher´s personal and professional development.

A further key element is an extensive training in the methodology and didactics of their chosen subject. The course is a graduate course and is concluded with a Master´s Thesis written and presented in English.
