Graduate Curriculum

The Master of Science in Education in Visual Arts Education (MSEd) Program
serves certified art teachers who are pursuing a master's degree for professional advancement, artist-teacher development, and/or students who wish to obtain a master's degree in preparation for doctoral study. The MSEd program meets New York State art teachers requirements to complete a master's degree for Professional teaching certification, and is intended for regional and non-regional artist-teachers interested in a dynamic, blended graduate program that is both efficient and flexible to professional needs.

    In response to student interest and a curricular emphasis on arts-based research, the Visual Arts Education Graduate Program has been streamlined to a fifteen-month blended learning experience where students are engaged in summer-intensive course work, online course work during the school year, and one winter intersession retreat. The unique curricular combination of on-campus and online course work allows for robust engagement with course curricula, development of mentorship with faculty,
and building of community in student cohorts.
