Wayne State University

Master of Arts in Teaching K - 12

The Mission of the Art Education programs is to challenge the Learner cognitively (teaching skills), affectively (personal disposition), and artistically (content knowledge)  to the next level of their development and education. While recognizing that each person develops in his or her own unique way, we believe that the best teachers are those who continually strive to look deeper into this lifelong process. and make this the goal of their educational experiences. To those learners we dedicate our efforts.

Students who earn a Master of Arts in Teaching degree, in Visual Arts Education, will also earn the provisional certification from the state of Michigan (LQ) while they are completing their Master’s Degree. This enables them to be employed teaching visual arts in schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. Graduates with this degree and certification are employed in public schools, charter schools, parochial schools, and a variety of academies and arts-focused high schools throughout the state of Michigan. Alumni from Wayne State University in Visual Arts Education have been acknowledged statewide for their outstanding performance as teachers.
