With over a 70 year history, the Department of Art Education believes in the intrinsic value of art as a catalyst for social change. Not only can art promote the development of the individual but serves to enrich and enliven the world around us. As a comprehensive education and research program, we only offer graduate level degrees. We find this provides a rigorous and individualized learning experience as students work towards one of our 9 specialized degree options. At Florida State University, we empower people to empower people through art.
