The M.A. in Art Education prepares candidates to be:

  • Art teachers in elementary and secondary schools
  • Art teachers at colleges or universities
  • Art teachers at museums
  • Art administrators


The Art Education program’s strong academic emphasis helps teachers who are creative artists become highly literate in the history and language of art. In addition to coursework in education, students in the 38- semester-hour Art Education program are required to take studio art and art history classes. Students also draw on resources in American studies, anthropology, sociology, and the program in literature, science, and the arts to complete their degree.
