Experienced teachers and professional artists who want to begin an art education career can develop their skills and knowledge through the Master's in Art Education program.
This degree prepares you to teach art at all grade levels. It also provides the educational foundation to pursue a career as a museum or community arts professional.
In this 36-credit hour program, you’ll learn about curriculum theory and development, multimedia technologies, art education history and literature, art education outside the traditional classroom environment, and art instruction for atypical student populations. Classes are held in late afternoon and evening and during the summer to accommodate the schedules of working professionals.
International students are encouraged to apply early to allow extra time for their materials to arrive.
The Graduate Studies Office will accept unofficial transcripts and self-reported test scores for admission reviews. Any admission made with these documents would be conditioned on receipt of official documents, which should be provided as soon as possible.
Note: If you are currently enrolled or have applied in the past year, you are eligible for a reduced application fee of $35. Learn more »
