Program Overview

Earn your Art Education Master’s degree from a top university, realize your full artistic potential, and excel as an art educator in 21st century learning environments. The online Master of Arts in Art Education (MAAE) is the master’s program art teachers dream of. It combines online convenience with a cutting-edge curriculum, taught by celebrated leaders in the field who are committed to student success.


You flourish in an engaging high-tech, high-touch learning environment among a supportive, close-knit community of art educators, artists, cultural workers and scholars. You also earn a valuable credential in two years while continuing to work. The online MAAE traditionally offers the best of both worlds: a degree online plus the option of taking immersive summer studio courses on our Gainesville campus.

Note: Due to COVID-19, the one-week residential summer studio has been temporarily replaced with a two-week, at-home studio intensive that features synchronous and asynchronous learning.

"The experience in UF’s masters of art education program has been one that I will never forget. I know that I have improved so much as an art educator, and my students are reaping the benefits of what this program has done for me. I can only imagine where I’ll be after I finish."

—Bryce Appleton ‘17, online M.A. in Art Education, University of Florida
