The Art and Art Education program of Columbia University Teachers College is now accepting applications for the 2013–2014 academic year. Program faculty are seeking outstanding and highly motivated applicants to join our dynamic community of artist/teacher practitioners and researchers.
About the Program
Located on the Upper West Side of New York City, the work of the program is deeply engaged with the museums, cultural, and community life of the City. It also has a long track record of serving the arts community in the United States and throughout the world through the work of its graduates who hold prestigious positions in schools, museums, community settings, art colleges, and universities.
The Program is framed to address the pluralistic demands of contemporary art education, integrating studio and educational practice, theory, and research. Courses give priority to learning through dialogue within which individuals are encouraged to hone their individual analytical and reflective skills. Support for professional development is offered through real-world experiences in diverse arts settings, individual tutorials, collaborative projects, and advising that build deep—yet flexible—skills needed for the future. The Program offers rich resources from specially equipped studios in which students engage in both traditional and innovative cross-media practice, as well as our own Macy Art Gallery, whose full exhibition schedule, lecture series, weekend workshops, and symposia draw artists and scholars from around the world.
Applicants have the opportunity to choose from five degree tracks:
EdD for applicants who wish to undertake the highest level of scholarly arts and education-based research
EdM for applicants who wish to specialize in advanced research, community arts, museum education, or leadership
MA-Initial for applicants who wish to become certified as teachers at the initial level
MA for applicants who need to design a program of study to meet specific professional goals or personal interests and needs
INSTEP/MA (Professional) for applicants looking for a low residency (summer only) route to the completion of their professional certification
The program also offers specialization in K–12 art education, design education, museum education, community arts education, art in higher education, diversity in art education, international collaboration, and relationship between studio teaching practice and theory.
