The master programme's subject area is education, and the programme's two specialisation areas are didactics and special education, within which focus is directed towards relevant topics for educational theory and practice development. The study offers an introduction to research and professional work and provides a basis for both advanced research training and educational practice, including employment outside of the school system. The didactics component is based on general didactic theory, emphasizing today's challanges in educational activity, such as skills, international educational policy, adult training, multiculturalism and digital media.
The field special needs education is based on a complex understanding between the areas rational and categorical perspective, individual- and system alteration.

UiA facilitates student exchange through established mobility programmes like Erasmus+ and Norplus. The university also holds the ECTS Label and Diploma Supplement Label.
See UiA’s website on student exchange: https://www.uia.no/en/student/go-on-exchange/go-on-exchange-study-abroadhttps://www.uia.no/en/student/go-on-exchange/go-on-exchange-study-abroad
The students may go on exchange to mobility partners in among other countries Denmark, Sweden, England or the USA, where they may choose courses that are relevant and can be incorporated into our master’s programme. Some of our most important partner institutions are listed on our website: https://www.uia.no/exchangestudies/search?soid=1831https://www.uia.no/exchangestudies/search?soid=1831
These partner institutions are chosen because they have courses that are thematically suited to be included in our master’s programme.
The programme opens for exchange in the third semester (30 credits), but this may be extended to a full year and include work on the master’s thesis. Information will be given early in the first semester, and students are encouraged to go on exchange. In collaboration with universities in England, USA, Denmark and Sweden we are in the process of developing course packages specially adapted to our master’s programme.
Please do not hesitate to contact our coordinator for student exchange, Tone Frøysnes (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org@uia.no) or programme leader Ilmi Willbergh (mailto:email@example.com@uia.no) for further information.
