Masters Degree Program and Five-Year Combined Program
The primary mission of the Art Education masters level program is to prepare art teachers for public and private school service, who posses knowledge and skills in the arts, advanced theoretical and practical knowledge in art education, and understanding of the roles of education within wider contexts of culture and society. The Art Education program also offers the opportunity for undergraduate students to participate in a five year combined degree program that allows students to simultaneously earn a bachelors in Art while also obtaining a Masters degree in Art Education. Both of the master’s level Art Education programs offer students the opportunity to pursue a teacher certification following completion of the program.
