Art Education provides students with a strong foundation in art studio and art history, along with theory and practice of art education. The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Art Education provides in-service training, professional development, and consultation services to the schools of Fayette County and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Candidates admitted to the graduate program in Art Education are expected to have completed course work equivalent to an undergraduate major in Art Education (in no case less than 18 hours in Art Education and Education, 12 hours in Art History, and 18 hours in Art Studio). Prospective candidates who do not meet these requirements should seek the counsel of the Program Faculty Committee to make up deficits prior to acceptance into the program. In addition, candidates must submit for review by the Program Faculty Committee, a portfolio of recent artworks and professional writing and other evidence of professional attainment (or a 300-500 word statement of interest in advance studies in Art Education).
Program requirements may change at any time. Contact the DGS of your intended program to confirm requirements.
