Develop your ideas
Graduate students in the Master of Arts in Art Education program engage deeply with the foundations, history and contemporary ideas surrounding teaching and learning art. With a dual focus on artmaking and idea exploration, you'll find new ideas and revisit concepts of interest — both creative and professional — as you refine your studio expertise and expand your art education knowledge and voice.
Deepen your skills
Working side-by-side with instructors in your chosen field of study, you'll receive one-on-one feedback and instruction. The cutting-edge tools and well-equipped facilities available to you as an SFA School of Art graduate student will feed your artistic interests and ambitions, while research-based art education coursework develops deeper understandings in the field of art education.
The hybrid low-residency MAAE is a 30-credit-hour degree that is typically completed in two years and concludes with completion of a publication-worthy written piece and a solo exhibition of your art. Students seeking a more studio-focused MAAE follow a similar coursework path, to complete a 36 credit-hour degree with an expanded offering in studio artmaking without the written research component. Requirements for either MAAE track must be completed within six years of admission to the program.
