Master in Teaching of Visual Arts for Teachers of the 3rd cycle of Basic Education and of Secondary Education

InformationCourse/CS accredited by the Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES).

The Master degree in Teaching Visual Arts in the 3rd Cycle of Basic Education and Secondary Education (MEAV), is a joint program of the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences (FPCEUP) and the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto (FBAUP), is a professional master's degree that qualifies to teach in the subject group of visual arts in the 3rd Cycle of Basic and Secondary Education.

The MEAV is an academic and professional training project for teachers in Visual Arts, covering the scientific areas of Visual Arts and Education Sciences, in a total of 120 ECTS, focusing specifically on General Educational Training, Specific Didactics in the area of Visual Arts, Initiation to Professional Practice, including Supervised Teaching Practice, and Training in the Teaching Area: Visual Arts.

The programme is divided into 2 curricular years. In the 1st year, the programme provides the opportunity to discuss complex questions about teaching and learning in the visual arts, using critical conceptual frameworks and innovative research methodologies in the field of art education. The aim is to ensure both training for the research work of a reflective teacher and the acquisition of the skills required for a (Master's) internship.

The 2nd year is divided between the Internship (“Teacher Training”) and the Report. The internship allows the exercise of pedagogical practice in schools of the 3rd Cycle of Basic and Secondary Education (with which cooperation protocols have been previously established), with the monitoring and supervision of cooperating teachers at the (internship) school and the supervision of FPCEUP and FBAUP faculty. The program of the Report course is part of the specific didactics area and varies according to themes, issues and problems selected by the students, taking into account the experience in the internship context and the problematization of teaching practice in visual arts and with research in the field of art education. The Report (and the MEAV) culminates with the presentation and public defense of the final report to a jury, specially composed for this purpose.


The MEAV targets those interested in quality academic and professional training, focused on the development of knowledge capable of responding to the challenges of teaching in the visual arts, in the context of the school and the demands imposed on artistic education. The conditions for access to the MEAV are, cumulatively, the following:

  2. Demonstrate oral and written mastery of the Portuguese language (to be assessed, respectively, in the interview and in the presentation, through a motivation letter, of the reasons underlying the application)..

The MEAV provides scientific and pedagogical skills necessary for the exercise of teaching in the field of Visual Arts, articulating the teaching and learning process with the current qualification requirements of the teaching staff derived from social, educational, scientific and technological transformations. The MEAV prepares its students for the development and/or enhancement of a professional career in Teaching and Training in Basic and Secondary Schools, in the field of Visual Arts teaching.
