The Art + Education program envisions a radical space where contemporary art and social justice education meet. We believe that artist-educators are cultural workers, researchers, public intellectuals, and activists who help us see ourselves and the world in new ways. Our degrees include hands-on experiences in schools, community settings, and the public realm.
Join a community of artists, educators, activists, and community organizers working together to create critical art interventions that inspire dialogue and catalyze social change.
With a focus on contemporary art, social justice education, and critical multiculturalism, the MA in Teaching Art, K–12, Initial Certification envisions the artist-educator as cultural worker, intellectual, and activist.
This dual degree allows undergraduate students the opportunity to pursue a masters degree and teaching certification while they focus on their art practice.Degree Details
