Arts Education (2020)
Arts Education comprises the study of Dance, Drama, Music-Sound Arts and Visual Arts in a range of educational and community settings. The Arts are an essential part of living. Engaging in the arts offers significant intrinsic societal value, enhances academic outcomes and contributes to overall quality of life. Students in Arts Education papers will gain specific discipline knowledge and a broader understanding of the Arts in educational settings through hands-on learning opportunities that nurture curiosity and creativity.
The postgraduate Masters in Education (Arts Education) programme extends upon this knowledge and deepens theoretical understandings. Students graduating with significant study in the area of Arts education are well positioned to take leadership roles within schools ensuring creative and meaningful learning in the future.
Papers with the subject code EDART may be taken by any student, with the approval of the appropriate Dean.
