Coordinating professional education courses with work in liberal arts, graduate research, and a concentration in studio arts including emerging digital and alternative media, the MA in Art Education offers custom designed programs of study to meet individual needs. A series of graduate education seminars address historical and contemporary issues in art theory, criticism, and education. Drawing on the wide range of studio departments, nearly one-third of the program is reserved for work in one or more studio areas, liberal arts, art therapy, or educational media, depending upon the student’s particular background and career needs. The independent thesis or graduate project, which is normally completed in two semesters, may take the form of either an academic research paper or a graduate project in an appropriate format.
