Art Education, M.Ed.

About the Program

The program is designed to allow students seeking a master’s degree to earn a certification in art (PK–12) or to pursue advanced, post-certification studies. The degree is not required for certification, and certification requirements may vary based on academic experience. See Certification Requirements.

The degree program must be planned with an adviser to ensure that degree and/or certification requirements are satisfied. Students enrolled in the M.Ed. program should consult with both an adviser in the Art program as well as an adviser in the School of Education.

Specific Admissions Requirement: In addition to the general admission requirements, students must have a portfolio review. Students with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts are exempt from this requirement. Arrangements for the portfolio review can be made in the Office of Enrollment Management. Students must have appropriate prerequisites for any Fine Arts studio courses taken at the graduate level.
