B.A. Art-Media-Aesthetic Education
The B.A. Art - Media - Aesthetic education brings together the core disciplines of art science, film and media sciences as well as art education together with fields of practice to an integrative study program. The program conveys comprehensive cultural-historical, genre-specific and media-specific knowledge of aesthetic products and works of art, their conditions of origin and the social contexts in which they interact with other objects, product designs and stagings. In the field of art science, as well as film and media studies, the conditions and effects of perception in artistic and media production and processes in (audio-) visual culture and film, as well as in space and architecture are particularly addressed. The study combines analysis, contextualization and mediation of artistic and media objects and processes. The integrative entanglement of the core sciences aims to take into account in particular the contemporary forms of artistic production and their mediation and to take equal account of their aesthetic, material and medial, their symbolic and reflective aspects.
The B.A. Art - Media - Aesthetic Education focuses on interdisciplinary education. In the practice of research and teaching artistic and media objects and practices are analyzed in the context of their stories with the instrument of art and media science approaches, historically and culturally contextualized and further investigated in terms of forms of innovative art and cultural mediation in different formal and informal educational situations. Fields of practice are integrated into the study concept for all fields of study. One focus is on the analysis and testing of handling styles and arrangement models in connection with concrete projects in presentation institutions, such as museums or exhibitions. Furthermore, the study offers learning, testing and didactic reflection of media-based teaching strategies of artistic design and art and media theoretical content in schools, museums and exhibitions. In the field of art education the field of aesthetic education and subject didactics is deepened. The ability to practice one's own artistic practice is supported as well as a critically reflective and productive way of dealing with the media. The organizational summary in a B.A. has advantages for the disciplines. The students with scientific orientation are also confronted with questions of practical fields and mediation. The pedagogically interested students acquire comprehensive specialist knowledge, which provides the basis for a productive engagement with aesthetic education, subject didactics and their practical implementation.
