The Doctoral Programme in Artistic Education (pdEA) is a joint doctorate between the Universidade do Porto and the Universidade de Lisboa, through the Faculties of Belas Artes (Universidade do Porto), Psicologia e de Ciências da Educação (Universidade do Porto), Belas Artes (Universidade de Lisboa) and Instituto de Educação (Universidade de Lisboa). This course falls within the epistemological and ontological field of artistic education, opening spaces to question the naturalized narratives surrounding the arts and their relations with education. Thus a space of plurality and difference is open for students to practice unique actions, simultaneously informed by their inclusion in terms of an international state-of-the art, where they discuss the dialogical relations between artistic practices and educational practices. The pdEA enables advanced research work in the field of visual arts, performative arts, educational work in artistic and cultural institutions and artistic education.
As it is a joint Doctorate, dialogues and transits are established between the different institutions at the level of the organization of school hours, workshops, conferences and publications.
The course aims to develop in-depth knowledge in the field of Artistic Education (AE) and systematic research skills, both from a theoretical and epistemological point of view and from a methodological point of view. This will allow critical problem-solving in the field of research and/or innovation or the expansion and redefinition of existing knowledge or professional practices in an autonomous territory involving the areas of Art and Educational Sciences
