  • Occupational Profiles of Graduates

    The graduates of this study programme are fully qualified to pursue the profession of art teacher at primary and secondary school and at the appropriate level of multi-year gymnasiums. In addition, he is qualified to work in out-of-school (eg leisure-time) institutions. She is ready to start her professional career on well structured knowledge and skills in the field of art. The effectiveness of his / her professional conduct is conditioned by his / her didactic knowledge of the content of art education at elementary schools as well as the specifics of schools by medium and broader general pedagogical and psychological knowledge and skills (knowledge of the broader foundations of education and training, knowledge of educational and educational practices, knowledge of education and education actors, ).

    The graduates of a one-dimensional study plan of a so-called teacher program, which takes into account the dominance of professional authorship (artistic and pedagogical performance), have increased artistic competencies with specialization in elementary art schools, secondary art schools and higher vocational schools. Graduates can compete with graduates of art colleges. Our graduates of the present combination of Art / Visual Creativity are excellently applied not only to these types of schools but also as creative personalities with pedagogical education also in other institutions with a focus on art education.

    The post-graduate master's program of art education is designed so that the graduate gains after his / her studies the necessary competencies that will allow him to work as a teacher according to § 20 of Act No. 563/2004 Coll., On Teachers, as amended.

  • Regulated Professions
    • Teacher of the second level of primary school
    • Secondary school teacher
    • Teacher of artistic vocational subjects at PSA, SVS and conservatory
    • Higher vocational school teacher
  • Practical Training

    Practices are conceived as a coherent and graduating system with an emphasis on interconnection with theory and reflection and self-reflection of the student as a teacher.

    The aim of the teaching practice is to acquire the professional competencies necessary in the daily work of the teacher, to get acquainted with the roles in which the teacher enters his / her work, to become aware of his / her own professional needs and gradually to take responsibility for the planning, implementation and evaluation of the teaching. Throughout the course, students get a real idea of what the teacher's everyday work involves.

    Practice forms a coherent system of successive subjects. In the follow-up master's programs, these are subjects of teaching practice 1 (1st semester), teaching practice 2 (2nd semester) of teaching practice 3 (3rd semester). In total, these practices are in the range of 280 hours (two-level study), followed by a seminar on teaching practice. Seminar on teaching practice students enroll during the study twice (in the first and second semesters). The aim of the reflection is to provide students with a space for sharing and reflecting experiences from their own pedagogical practice and helping them to deepen reflective and self-reflective skills.

    The system of practice is regularly evaluated both through closed and open questions, both by students and accompanying teachers. Reflective seminars are also evaluated.

  • Goals of Theses

    Master's diploma thesis can be considered in two ways:

    1. as a theoretical work (65 standard pages, ie 117,000 characters including spaces)

    2. as an artistic or artistic-pedagogical realization (at least 43 standard pages, ie 77,400 characters.

    In both cases, it is necessary to focus on the field theory, especially the theory of art education and its interdisciplinary overlap to the history of art, art theory and other related disciplines. That is why the master's thesis, which is based on practical artistic performance, must be accompanied by a text in which the theoretical contexts adequately related to the presented artwork are adequately investigated. And because artistic expression is not conceivable without an increased role of subjective approach and originality, we also expect original author solutions in the art and text part of the diploma thesis. Practical performances are also suitable for authors' presentation in the form of a separate exhibition, participation in an exhibition or other form of publication.

    The guidelines for the master's thesis have been modified since January 2016 by the Standards of the Department of Fine Arts for the finalization of the thesis, following the Dean's Instruction No. 1/2015. To implement the final papers (Bachelor's, Diploma, Rigous and Final Works).
