The M.S.Ed in Visual Arts Education program does not lead to Initial teaching certification for people with undergraduate degrees in art studio, art history, or other areas. Prospective students who have earned a bachelor's degree in these areas and who wish to become art teachers may apply as second-degree students to the undergraduate art education program.

As a prerequisite for admission, applicants must possess certification for Visual Art PreK - 12 from their respective state. Within New York State, completion of the degree qualifies students for Professional teaching certification in Visual Art PreK - 12 for those students currently working under Initial art teacher certification.
