About

The MA Programs in Art + Education  engage a radical approach to visual arts education and artistic practice, with a special focus on contemporary art and its social context. We position the artist-teacher as cultural producer, intellectual, and activist, prepared to work in schools, museums, community-based programs, alternative educational sites, and in the public realm. Our programs also train students as innovative researchers and persuasive advocates for the arts in schools and society. This blog shares some of the exciting student work produced in this department.

Our programs include MA Teaching Art (Initial Certification), MA Teaching Art (Professional Certification), MA in Art, Education and Community Practice, MA Teaching Art and Social Studies (Dual Certification).
