Waldorf Education

Bachelor of Arts

The Bachelor’s programme in Waldorf Education is offered at the Institute for Waldorf Education, Inclusion and Intercultural Studies in Mannheim.

It imparts the skills and knowledge required as a teacher in the context of (Waldorf) education. The programme combines scientific, artistic and social personality development with the aim of working “with and for people”. A considerable portion of the course involves practical learning. This is accompanied by scientific theory and reflection. Another special feature is the high proportion of artistic (self-)education. By covering a broad repertoire of scientific and didactic-methodological content, the programme provides comprehensive preparation for the tasks awaiting future Waldorf educators.
