Art Education

Art Education program at UMass Amherst

The Art Education Program at both the undergraduate and graduate levels emphasizes the development of students’ abilities as artists and teachers and the preparation of students for their application to state departments of education for teacher licensure. Students should be committed to teaching art in public elementary and secondary schools, continuing their own creative and research efforts, and learning in the visual arts. The programs are situated in the Department of Art and have strong cooperative relationships with the College of Education and the Art History program.

Who May Apply

The Art Education Program accepts undergraduates and graduate students for admission to the BFA and MA Art Education programs.
