Master Programme in Waldorf Education
The master programme in Waldorf Education is designed for experienced educationalists who want to carry out research into their fields of practice in order to develop their knowledge, skills and competence in education. It is for those who think that education has an important role to play in achieving individual, cultural and ecological sustainability. It is for educational 'activists' who want to be more effective in working with transformation within all pedagogical situations, seeking to influence our shared future.
Becoming a researcher for new visions
The core activity in the master programme is facilitating our students in attaining educational research competence. Our main focus is on qualitative research, recognising its power to provide deep insights into human experiences and relationships. We believe that educational research is a tool for renewal both on personal and societal levels. On the one hand, it enables practitioners to reflect on their experiences, give fresh life to professional activities and facilitate further work options. On the other hand, most of our students experience how becoming an educational researcher is empowering in the sense of creating new visions and consciousness.
Community of learners
The international community of students, usually coming from several countries/continents, is creating an intense atmosphere of shared academic enthusiasm, friendship and a sense of global togetherness.
Flexible and module based
The RSUC master programme consists of five modules, usually taken over the course of tree years. Students can choose to complete all modules in the course of two years, and thus take a full-time study load. During the course of the programme, lecturers and students spend twelve weeks together on six course sessions, taking place at Vidaråsen Camphill Village, south of Tønsberg. Many students combine work and studies.
All instruction and discussions are held in English, while written assignments and the master thesis can be delivered in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, German or English.
Applicants must have three years of educational practice, in addition to relevant studies on a level equivalent to a bachelor degree.
