The Department of Art and Art Professions at NYU Steinhardt is pleased to announce a new 34-credit M.A. program in Art, Education, and Community Practice that catalyzes social change through the arts.

Combining the fields of art, education, and social activism, this innovative program positions the work of an artist as having social and pedagogical impact and the work of an educator as a creative practice. It focuses on framing and supporting the artist as an activist, an educator, and a change agent.

The program is designed for studio practitioners, educators, community organizers, and social activists who want to be deeply engaged in both critical theory and pedagogy to inform how they address the audiences and communities with whom they collaborate. Involving faculty from across NYU schools and programs, the M.A. in Art, Education, and Community Practice offers the unique opportunity to work with practicing artists and educators in community-based and neighborhood settings.

Situated in the East Village in New York City, students are able to design and implement community-based projects in collaboration with vital cultural and educational organizations deeply committed to the neighborhood’s groundbreaking artistic traditions.

The flexible program of study can be tailored to student interests and completed in as a few as 12 months as a full-time student or in two years as a part-time student. The program begins in the fall semester.

The program joins our two existing M.A. programs in Art Education:

36-credit Initial Certification M.A. program – For aspiring teachers, this track leads to eligibility for New York state initial certification as a teacher of Visual Art, all grades (K–12). The program begins in the summer semester and can be completed in as little as 12 months as a full-time student or in two years as a part-time student.

30-credit Professional Certification M.A. program – For teachers who already have their initial certification, this track provides the credit hours and coursework necessary for the New York State Professional Certificate as a teacher of Visual Art, all grades (K–12). The program can be started in the summer or fall semester, and can be completed in as little as 12 months as a full-time student. Part-time study is also available.

All three of our M.A. programs in Art and Education combine aspects of contemporary art, critical pedagogy, and social activism.

Application Deadline:
February 1, 2014. Scholarships are available.
