Art Education

The MA Programs in Art + Education engage a radical approach to visual arts education and artistic practice with a focus on contemporary art, critical pedagogy, and social activism.

Our three distinct Master’s degree programs include Initial Certification — for students wishing to gain certification to teach K-12 Art in New York State, Professional Certification — for current teachers who are already certified to teach, and Art, Education and Community Practice — for artist educators interested in socially engaged art and activism).

All programs include hands-on experiences in schools, community settings, and the public realm. We run a free Saturday High School program in the Spring semester that allows students to infuse social justice issues into a dynamic art-making practice.
