The accelerated Master's program is for current University of Arizona undergraduate students in the BFA in Art and Visual Culture Education, the BFA in Studio Art, the BA in Studio Art or the BA in Art History. Accelerated Master's students take 12 units of graduate coursework during their senior year and use those graduate courses towards both their Bachelor's and Master's degrees. If students are on track to finish their Bachelor's degree in 4 years and can appropriately incorporate the graduate coursework into their undergraduate degree, students can earn a Bachelor's and Master's degree in 5 years.
The Art and Visual Culture Education Master's program is intended to meet the needs of students who wish advanced professional understanding within the field of Art Education. You may pursue an MA or, if interested in certification to teach in public schools and not currently certified, the MA plus certification.
Three options are available to students seeking the MA Degree:
Art and Visual Culture Studies | Offers the most flexibility to build expertise in an area of interest. You will take core art and visual culture education courses and use electives to build expertise.
Community and Museums | Provides learning and internship opportunities for students interested in professional roles as art and visual culture educators in community or museum venues.
Certification Option | Provides coursework leading to certification to teach art at k-12 levels in the state of Arizona. The certification is transferable, with minor adaptations, in many other states in the US.
