Not Accepting Applications
To best meet the needs of our students, we have decided to suspend enrollment in the Master of Arts in Teachers of Art, Grades K-12, Professional Certification. We encourage you to explore MA in Art, Education, and Community Practice or MA in Teaching Art, Grades K-12, Initial Certification.
Art+Education classes combine a foundation in critical pedagogy and cultural theory with important connections to practice, including experiences teaching in elementary and secondary schools. Students also develop an interdisciplinary, research based art practice through individual and collaborative projects that involve research and critical analysis.
The Final Project in Art+Education investigates how contemporary artistic practices can serve as forms of creative inquiry. Students work collaboratively to engage with creative research methods and investigate a meaningful social issue or question as artist educators.
Every year, students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of events including artist talks, panel conversations, educator visits, workshops, and field trips to art museums and galleries. We invite artists, educators, activists and others doing important socially engaged work to speak with students and share their knowledge.
