Master of Education - Art Education

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.

The Master of Education degree is designed to assist teachers who possess certification in visual arts education in developing greater skills in various media, innovative teaching methods, and in curriculum development.  This level of preparation will increase their level of effectiveness and innovation as teachers, assist in the creation of a diverse and interdisciplinary curriculum, and provide salary increases in many schools.
