Graduate Program



MASTER OF SCIENCE IN EDUCATION

SECONDARY EDUCATION/ART


The department of Art and Design, in cooperation with the Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers an art education teaching field as part of the Master of Science in Education (MS in Ed.) degree in secondary education. A jointly advised program ordinarily including at least 15 hours in art will be designed, taking into account each student's background interests. Throughout the program, the student must consult with the art graduate advisor before registering for any courses in art. Upon completion of the program, the student must have accumulated at least 42 semester hours in art (graduate and undergraduate work combined). Thus, students admitted to the program with less than 27 hours of acceptable undergraduate work will be required to complete more than 15 graduate hours in art in order to satisfy degree requirements. Students must achieve a 3.0 (A=4.0) grade point average in the art teaching field, as well as an overall average of 3.0.
