Master of Education
The Master of Education is a 30-credit, seven week low-residency program that qualifies students who already hold an initial teaching license to apply for a Massachusetts professional teaching license. This program is designed for working teachers who wish to develop deeper understanding of the contemporary fields of art and teaching, reinvigorate their studio practice, and/or learn to interpret and conduct research in art education. It is a good preparation for students who plan to seek a doctoral degree in art education in the future; applicants with such goals who are not licensed or seeking licensure are welcome to apply.
Unique to MassArt
The M.Ed balances three types of courses: studio, research, and pedagogy. During the program, students, investigate their own studio practice, become familiar with historical and contemporary issues in arts education emphasizing social justice and equity, and explore how to learn from and contribute to the research literature on visual arts learning and teaching.
