Art Education

The MA Programs in Art + Education aspire to transform the landscape of the field through a radical approach to visual arts education and artistic practice. With a special focus on contemporary art and its social context, the programs position the artist-teacher as cultural producer, intellectual, and activist able to work in schools, museums, community-based programs, alternative educational sites, and in the public realm. Our programs combine aspects of contemporary art, critical pedagogy, and social activism, preparing students to be innovative researchers and persuasive advocates for the arts in schools and society.

See examples of student work: Certification and Community Practice programs.
