Postgraduate Academic Studies
In a full-time course of studies, core elements of Anthroposophy, pedagogical anthropology, child and adolescent psychology and subject methodology are combined with an intensive artistic training in music, speech, Eurythmy, drama, clowning, painting, drawing and sculpting. In conjunction with practical experience gained in 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 one's chosen subject. The course is a graduate course and is concluded with a Master´s Thesis written and presented in English.
