MA in Art Education, P-12

The Art Education program at City College of New York prepares students to be reflective artist-educators who can teach in multiple settings, including schools, community centers, museums, and alternative learning sites. Students gain a critical understanding of the social significance of art education as they develop the skills to actively contribute to the field through their creative and academic work.
