The M.S. programs in arts education are offered through Syracuse University's School of Education. They prepare graduates to be innovative artists, effective and engaging educators, and advocates of the arts in the schools and communities they serve.
These dual programs from both the School of Education’s Department of Teaching and Leadership and the School of Art provide professional skills and curriculum strategies that are both arts based and principle centered, promoting community-engaged scholarship and problem-solving across disciplines. There are two arts education master’s degrees at Syracuse, depending on your existing New York State teacher certification:
- The arts education: preparation program is for candidates with a major or background in art, but no existing art certification. This program meets the academic requirements for both initial and professional New York State teacher certification in Visual Arts (all grades).
- The arts education: professional program is for candidates with existing New York State initial teacher certification in Visual Arts (all grades). This program meets the academic requirements for professional New York State teacher certification in Visual Arts.
