Master of Arts in Art Education

Make. Connect. Lead.

The Master of Arts in Art Education (MAAE) leverages the expertise in creative thought and action to prepare today’s teachers and future educators to address ongoing educational challenges.

The Master of Arts in Art Education (MAAE) is designed to advance the professional careers of artists and educators who are committed to democratizing access to high-quality arts education across schools, museums, galleries, and community and cultural organizations.

The MAAE program is designed to be completed in four semesters, encompassing two intensive summer sessions that are complemented by online courses. Seeking to accommodate the schedule of teaching professionals, this summer intensive format enables deep engagement with studies during the months when educators are typically not teaching.

The Master of Arts in Art Education provides me with a true sense of community where I feel like I am supported, challenged, and pushed out of my comfort zone. I love all the excitement and innovation that goes on at DAAP.
