MA in Art Education, P-12

The Art Education program at City College of New York prepares students to be reflective artist-educators who can teach in multiple settings, including schools, community centers, museums, and alternative learning sites. Students gain a critical understanding of the social significance of art education as they develop the skills to actively contribute to the field through their creative and academic work.

Visit the MA in Art Education website to learn more about the program. 

CCNY offers three graduate level programs in Art Education. Visit CCNY’s Art Education Program Website for additional information, course descriptions, admissions information, and program updates.
