The Art & Design Master of Arts is a 30 credit hour program consisting of online coursework during the Fall and Spring terms plus Summer residency sessions featuring electives in studio and art history taken on-campus during your summer visits:
These summer sessions allow you to actively practice your own art, potentially learn new artistic skill sets, and later apply these experiences in your classrooms.
The following courses are required for the low-residency program. To see a typical list of courses per term, visit an example Current Program Students page.
Your remaining credits will be upper level electives in studio and art history taken on-campus during your summer visits.
For more details and to design your own course of study, please contact the Academic Program Coordinator.
Students will design, conduct and complete Action Research Projects in lieu of a comprehensive exam required by the graduate school. The Art Education faculty will advise, review and provide feedback for the action research projects and reports.
