NYU Steinhardt’s programs in Art Education offer a unique opportunity to consider the arts and education through the lenses of contemporary artistic practice, social activism, and critical pedagogy. Located in downtown New York City, the program takes advantage of the incredible cultural resources of the East Village, Chelsea, and greater metropolitan area.
A new master’s program in community practice is offered, as well as two teacher certification programs:
- 34-credit Art, Education, and Community Practice M.A. program
Combines interdisciplinary coursework in contemporary artistic practice, educational theory, and social activism to prepare artists, educators, designers, community organizers, and other publicly situated activists to work within community-based contexts.
- 36-credit Initial Certification M.A. program
For aspiring teachers, this track leads to eligibility for New York state initial certification as a teacher of Visual Art, all grades (K-12). The program begins in the Summer semester and can be completed in as little as 12 months as a full-time student or two years part time.
- 30-credit Professional Certification M.A. program
For teachers with initial certification, this track provides the credit hours and coursework necessary for the New York State Professional Certificate as a teacher of Visual Art, all grades (K-12). The program begins in the Summer semester, and can be completed in as little as 12 months as a full-time student. Part-time study also available.
