BFA, Studio Art/MA, Teaching Art, All Grades Dual Degree
This dual degree allows undergraduate students the opportunity to pursue a master's degree and teaching certification while they focus on their art practice.
Official Degree Title
Getting my BFA in Studio Art and my one-year accelerated track of continued study in the MA, Art Education program was an experience I am incredibly proud of.
As a BFA candidate in Studio Art, I decided to continue my study at NYU by taking the initial certification program leading to an MA in Art Education. This course of study allowed me to grow as an artist first in undergrad and then gain my certification to become a K–12 art teacher in only one year. I currently teach sculpture in a NYC public school and am so grateful for all I gained through my studies at NYU.
Benefits of the Dual Degree Program
Undergraduate students will be able to achieve a master’s degree at a greatly reduced cost and students may be able to waive the MAT/GRE requirement for enrollment in New York State teacher certification program.
