Art Education program structure

The majority of bachelor’s art education degrees are offered in the US as four-year programs. Because most American universities follow the liberal arts model of education, students must complete general education classes as well as art education-specific modules.

After finishing your bachelor’s degree, you can enroll in a master’s degree. Studied over one or two years, MA programs let you dive deeper into a branch of art education that most interests you.

Doctoral programs in art education can be hard to come by, but they’re worth searching for if you’re eager to contribute to academic research in the field. PhDs usually take between four and six years to complete.

Your timetable will consist of lectures, seminars, workshops, and tutorials. You’ll also spend time in educational settings, like schools, galleries, and museums, where you’ll hone your teaching approaches and gain real-world experience.

The exact content of your art education program will depend on the university and elective modules you choose. However, most institutions introduce students to these fundamental topics:

  • An introduction to art education
  • Teaching and learning styles
  • Art education theory, practice, and potential
  • Valuing and facilitating creativity in art education
  • Assessment methods in art education
  • Special educational needs, disability, and inclusion
  • Contemporary challenges in art education
  • Alternative models for art education
