Welcome to the online M.A. in Art Education

Our leading-edge curriculum and studio experiences invigorate you intellectually, nourish you artistically, and prepare you to thrive in an array of 21st century teaching and learning environments.


We live in an increasingly visual, technological, and culturally diverse world with complex economic, environmental, social, and political challenges. As an art educator, you are in a unique position to assert art’s role not only in fostering multicultural and intercultural understanding, but also in cultivating essential critical thinking and problem solving skills in others. These are exciting times to work in our field.

The instruction is phenomenal. It’s anything and everything you want it to be. And I love my classmates. I never thought I could have this much camaraderie with an online degree program.
