Program Total Credits: 36

Coordinating professional education courses with work in liberal arts, graduate research, and a concentration in studio arts that include emerging digital and alternative media, the MA in Art Education Program 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.

Fall Credits: 12


AEDU 509 is required of students who do not pass the Art Education Department Writing Proficiency Exam. The exam must be taken and passed with a score of 80 percent or higher in the first semester of enrollment and it does not fulfill any credit requirements for the MA. If a student must take AEDU 509, his/her semester will include a total of 14 credits.
