Master’s Program Established for Waldorf Educators


The establishment of this Master’s Program is intended to respond to the needs of contemporary Waldorf teachers for a space for professional and personal growth. Students will be engaged in research projects independently or collaboratively in order to study the nature of human beings, to deepen the art of teaching, to reflect upon practical experiences, and to meet the challenges of our times.We provide an academic platform where teachers can develop through cooperative learning, dialogues and reflections, along with individual research inquiries.

Collaboration between Taiwanese and German Institutions

International and Bilingual Learning Environment


All courses will be taught in English (with Chinese oral translation when necessary) or in Chinese. The diversity of the composition of the student body will constitute a rich and heterogeneous cultural environment for all to learn from one another. It is particularly beneficial for those who are interested in the Chinese/Taiwanese language and culture to come to study in such a culturally nourishing environment.The program will enroll students every other year.

 

 

Teacher-friendly Schedule for Part-time Graduate Study


Students of this three-year Master’s Program meet on campus for three weeks during a period in July or August and for one week during a period in January or February accompanied by homework assignments,projects and conferences.
