Master’s degrees offer advanced opportunities for students who want to take their education further. The typically small class sizes in postgraduate programs allow students to gain the skills needed to develop their careers with one to two years of intense study.

What is a Master in Art Education? Graduate programs in art education can prepare students for taking ownership of educational experiences around the world. Students may specialize in medium or era-specific education or may choose to balance their curricula with a wide variety of art techniques, histories, and instructional methods. Other areas of specialization may involve advocacy, history, community arts, museum education, and art curation. Students usually receive a strong curriculum of theory and practical experience both inside and outside the studio, honing themselves as distinguished educators through rigorous coursework and research.

Students who complete a Master in Art Education can gain the ability to teach across multiple age groups, conduct exhaustive art analysis and criticism, and navigate the annals of history with professionalism and sensitivity. These traits can both advance a student’s profession and enable him or her to develop further as an artist.

Costs associated with an advanced degree should be leveraged against living expenses and time requirements. Since every program has different requirements and a unique fee schedule, interested students should contact their universities of choice for accurate cost assessments.

There is no typical work environment for an individual with this qualification because it provides the road to so many different occupations. Students typically go on to work within public schools, universities, museums, art centers, and art galleries, though there are many other industries that call on this skill set as well. Gallery director, art educator, museum specialist, art teacher, art consultant, and educational consultant are just a handful of the job titles that graduates in this field hold.

Family and work life don’t have to stand in the way of advanced education. You can pursue a Master in Art Education with traditional or online classes. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The MA Creative Education: Making Learning is a crucible for open inquiry through arts education, that places making at the gravitational centre of learning. It explores the permeable structures and transformational agency of creative learning, across a range of educational paradigms, societal and cultural contexts. As a student on the MA Creative Education: Making Learning you will have the chance to explore your own role as an artist/educator, while producing a wide range of possible outcomes, from classroom-based research to participatory artwork. You will examine debates about the role of the arts in learning, and learning as art, gaining an understanding of learning across mainstream and alternative settings. The programme is appropriate to a wide range of subject specialists. We support professional educators, teachers, tutors and lecturers as well as creative and community practitioners who want to develop reflective practice in a wide range of socio-cultural, institutional or professional contexts. -
