Master of Arts in Art Education

College of Arts and Sciences
Art Matters. Teaching Matters. You Matter.

The Online Master of Arts in Art Education program at Ohio State is geared toward art educators who want to change their thinking and the world through artmaking and education. Through our program, you will think differently about what art education is and what art educators do. You will make new connections – between students and faculty, between art-making and teaching, between research and practice. You will redefine your practice as you expand art education beyond the classroom walls and even globally.
