Program Overview

What’s your canvas? Is it your students, your art or your community?  Your canvas is your passion – and a master’s degree in art education from the University of Florida can help you fulfill your goals beyond what you may have thought possible.

As the art community continually evolves to respond to societal changes and new technology, like digital media and the Internet, it has become essential that art educators and artists remain at the forefront of developing educational methodologies and techniques. While a deep respect and understanding of the fundamentals of art are paramount, it is equally important to investigate contemporary practices, emerging technologies, and new learning environments in the field.

Join a progressive, engaging program that not only prepares you to educate your students with the most contemporary methods and theories, but also enables your passion for art making to flourish and positively impact society. Because the needs of your students, schools and the global art community are as diverse as the art you practice, you will gain the knowledge and confidence to continually develop research and refine your methodologies as necessary to adapt.

The University of Florida online Master of Arts in Art Education prepares art teachers to thrive within 21st century educational environments. Combining the flexibility of an immersive and virtual environment with rich, hands-on studio experiences, you will learn and collaborate with fellow teachers to quickly apply your learning in your classroom and community.
