Studio Teaching: MA
from the Bulletin
The Master of Arts program in Studio Teaching offers art education practice and theory for students with an undergraduate degree in a studio discipline. The program consists of courses in art education theory, methods and materials including pre-practicum experiences in gallery and school settings, student teaching, and a concluding clinical practicum to thoroughly prepare students to enter the field of teaching. Additional coursework may be necessary if undergraduate work does not satisfy minimum state requirements. The program can lead to professional licensure for teaching visual arts to children in preschool through grade 12.
The Master of Arts programs in Art Education and Studio Teaching allow students to concentrate on developing methods that teach children and adolescents to think visually and to create art that has personal meaning. Graduate students become a cohesive community of art educators and studio practitioners.
