Master of Education in Art Education

The program of study leading to the degree of Master of Education in Art Education is designed to provide advanced level study for students of two main kinds. It serves as professional development for art teachers and supervisors in the public schools and as preparation for those interested in a variety of careers, such as museum education, arts advocacy or community arts.
