Art Education

The School of Art and Design offers an opportunity for individuals with an undergraduate degree in Art to earn a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in Art Education. The degree is a collaborative program between the College of Education and the School of Art and Design. Faculty in the College of Education provide professional education courses and faculty from the School of Art and Design teach art content courses related to the program and supervise art MAT students during their internships in elementary and secondary schools.

The full-time program is completed in twelve months, beginning in the second Summer Session and ending in Summer 1 semester of the following year. The MAT in Art Education leads to an advanced degree while completing requirements for a North Carolina teaching license.
