The Master of Arts in Art Education degree is designed for students who want to engage in a broad and critical intellectual exploration of contemporary questions and debates in arts and education.

At Illinois, faculty and graduate students build a vibrant community of inquiry within the context of a Research 1 University. This community, including faculty whose breadth of interests span topics including contemporary art and visual culture in education, formal and informal learning, cultural policy and urban studies, and teacher training and identity provides an intellectually stimulating environment for graduate students to stretch themselves intellectually and prepare for the possibility of future doctoral study.

Masters students receive funding and support as teaching assistant for the normal length of their program, which, for the M.A., is 3 semesters. This funding, which is conditional upon academic standing includes a tuition waiver, salary, health insurance, annual conference funding, plus many opportunities to gain competitive grants. Students complete 4 art education courses and have the opportunity to elect courses from studio art, art history as well as from any program offered in the university that is complimentary.
