Teaching is one of the worlds most important professions. Throughout history knowledge has been transferred from generation to generation.
We develop our education programmes to keep pace with educational revisions and are pleased with the good reputation that teacher education at Karlstad University has always enjoyed. Karlstad graduates are attractive on the employment market.
We are open to new ideas and challenges and want to offer a good balance between research and tested practice. Students who like working with children and young people can look forward to an exciting professional life. Our partnership agreements with schools and municipalities ensure that all students can integrate and alternate between theory and practice throughout their studies.
Students who have an academic degree or different professional qualifications can add teacher training to their previous education and earn a degree in teaching. There is also a wide range of further training offered, for instance, special education, school leader, Masters programmes and doctoral studies.
