The M.A. Art Education's program is intended to serve as an extension of the established undergraduate art education program and provide individualization of instruction and program offerings beyond the baccalaureate for those individuals who wish to pursue a higher level of achievement in their chosen field.
The Masters of Arts in Education: Art Education's program will extend the NCDPI competencies currently required for initial "A" licensure by extending the art educator's knowledge base and competencies by analytically reading art education professional literature, analyzing and discussing art education publications, theories, current practices in education and research. The program will extend their competencies through self-reflection and self evaluation of their planning skills, computer competencies, as well as through advance study of curriculum content, methods of organizing for instruction, materials, the classroom environment, and knowledge of the students and their needs. With this additional knowledge and experience, the teacher will be prepared to take the role of a collaborative leader and the responsibilities for guiding colleagues in their planning.
