Admission and Degree Requirements

A bachelor’s degree in art education, studio art, or art history is recommended for admission to any of the three emphases within the art education master’s program. However, special consideration may be given to the applicant with a related bachelor’s degree and prior experience in art teaching, museum education, or art education work in a community-based setting.

All emphases require thirty-six semester hours of coursework consisting of thirty hours in art education (including twelve hours in core art education courses, six hours in the student’s chosen emphasis, three hours of internship or on-site experience, three hours in art education electives, and six hours in the thesis course); and six hours of studio art and/or art history. Students must present an approved thesis proposal to his or her thesis committee upon completion of eighteen semester hours of approved coursework and before beginning the thesis.
