Program Overview

The University of Florida’s Master of Arts in Art Education is a course of study that is administered through the College of Fine Arts, and under the School of Art & Art History. This may be an excellent time to pursue this prestigious graduate degree, as today’s schools more than ever need world-class educators capable of meeting the diverse needs of students, schools, and the global art community. Through the M.A. in Art Education, educators have the opportunity to learn to thrive and adapt in the modern classroom, which is constantly changing in today’s educational landscape.

This program’s distance learning delivery was designed with working professionals in mind who wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional graduate degree on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments. The M.A. in Art Education’s core curriculum consists of 36 credits and takes approximately two years to complete. All of the core classes are grounded in both theory and practice, utilizing high-level interactions, digital media tools, group collaboration, and hands-on, immersive studio experiences to promote purposeful teaching and art-making techniques. Through these classes, students will explore the impact that visual culture and other digital media have on children and learning, while also investigating and developing innovative teaching methods that can be immediately applied in the classroom and community. After completing this program, graduates may enhance their personal art making, while also being equipped with new teaching techniques to engage students in impactful art learning experiences.
