MA in Art Education
The MA in Art Education is a cohort program intended for teachers who desire graduate study in curriculum development and additional content and skills in the disciplines of a comprehensive art program. A masters degree prepares students to pursue a PhD or EdD in art education if that is their intention. The MA in art education can also contribute to K-12 licensure requirements for graduate students who are interested in teaching art. In addition to reviewing research literature in art education, this program has a rigorous studio practice component designed to integrate teaching and artistic practice. It is a four-semester, two-summer term, 36-hour program designed for practicing art educators as an alternative to a full-time residency on campus program. Most classes meet on Friday evenings or Saturdays to accommodate professionals working in schools.
