Subject: Children's Culture

Within the interdisciplinary subject field of Children's Culture you will

focus on cultural expressions for, by, with and among children. The aim

of your study is to obtain fundamental and deep knowledge of children's

culture, especially concerning the aesthetical part of the culture

concept (art, dance, music, theatre, media etc).

When completed the courses you will be expected to critically judge

cultural products intended for children from a variety of perspectives.

You will also be expected to have gained skills in stimulating

children's own creative activities.

The courses address you who either have a professional or a general

interest in children and children's culture.

Area of interest: Arts and Humanities

How are different cultures created and how do they affect us? Arts and Humanities is an area of interest that includes a wide variety of subjects such as Archaeology, Philosophy, History, Religion, Ethnology, Literature, and Theatre and Performance Studies. In one way or another these subjects are an expression of how culture affects human beings and society. As a student you will improve your analytical skills and learn to identify different lines of development, often in an interdisciplinary context.

Studies within Arts and Humanities give you broad general competence that is very useful in the job market, where autonomy, analytical and communication skills are in great demand.
