As a working art educator, you share your love of art with your students every day. You need a master’s degree program that fits smoothly into your life and gives you practical insights you can apply in your classroom.
Our Art MA, Art Education Track is designed to perfectly suit your situation. You’ll take classes online during the academic year and create art using a variety of your favorite mediums during a three-week, summer, intensive studio session.
You’ll also complete an independent research project that enables you to integrate your current teaching practice.
This master’s degree program fulfills the requirements for PDE Level II Certification in a way that blends conveniently into your life as an art educator.
We’ve creatively considered the classes you’ll take as a working art educator, so the time you invest in the online coursework does more than move you toward your degree. It breathes new ideas and perspectives into your lesson plans throughout the year.
Some of the areas you’ll study in this broad-based, research oriented program:
In addition, our faculty is well known for specialties in early childhood art, teaching students with special needs, digital applications in art education, and curriculum design.
While teaching art is very rewarding, it can be refreshing and inspiring to trade roles in the classroom and get professional feedback as you create works of art.
You’ll work with a variety of art forms in our three-week, summer, intensive studio session, which you’ll take in two separate summers. Housing on campus is available at weekly rates.
Student will submit a proposal for their Synthesis Independent Research Project and undergo a candidacy review upon the completion of 12-15 credits.
The Art Education Master’s Degree program has rolling admission, allowing students to enter the program at various times during the year, though a summer start is preferred.
This degree fulfills the requirements for PDE Level II Certification.
