Department of Art Education

Students, Alumni and Other Interested Parties:

Dr. David Gussak

Greetings! On behalf of the Department of Art Education, I welcome you to browse our website and learn about our programs, faculty, and students. We continue to undergo many changes while still embracing the department’s overall mission:

Our Purpose  
As a comprehensive education and research program for art education, art therapy, and arts administration, we strive to effect positive change in the community, the university, and our respective professions.

Our Business 
We conduct diverse, accessible, comprehensive graduate and undergraduate programs and research in art education, art therapy and arts administration.

Our Values 
We believe in the intrinsic value of art and its importance as a social good and as a catalyst for the development of the individual

We continue to abide by our ever-strengthening identity of Art for Life, which directly reflects this mission. The core of all that we do continues to support the theoretical and practical application of art to bring about social justice and change.

Because of how rapidly our department has been advancing, rather than updating this homepage on a regular basis, I urge you to visit and follow our numerous social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and our ongoing Department of Art Education blog). These are updated on a continual basis to provide you the most current and exciting information about our department and our respective programs. Our new office administrator, Heather Forlong, has developed an incredible team of graduate students to maintain these social media networks regularly, and our reach to our alumni and friend has been increased many times over. So please, explore these sites, and feel free to offer feedback and comments—we welcome all.

Our graduate university and departmental application materials are available on this website, but you may also contact Susan Messersmith at smessersmith@fsu.edu with questions about the admissions process. If you wish you may contact the directors of the degree programs directly:

PhD in Art Education: Dr. Tom Anderson

MS and PhD in Art Therapy: Dr. Marcia Rosal

MA and PhD in Arts Administration: Dr. Pat Villeneuve

5 yr Combined BA in Art/MS in Art Education: Dr. Jeff Broome

As well, please feel free to contact all faculty members with questions about their teaching specializations and research interests. If you have a question that is not answered by the information provided herein, please e-mail me at dgussak@fsu.edu.

Thanks for visiting and I look forward to hearing from you!

Dave Gussak, PhD, ATR-BC


Professor and Chairperson
