The low-residency Master of Arts in Art Education (MAAE) program is designed for experienced art educators who are ready to pursue their development as artists, teachers, reflective practitioners, and leaders in the field of art education. Students enrolled in the MA program have come from all over the United States (including Arizona, California, Florida, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Tennessee) and abroad (including New Delhi, India, and St. Croix, Virgin Islands). The program invites art teachers to reconnect with their studio practice while simultaneously developing new teaching strategies and skills associated with conducting qualitative classroom research. Closely mentored by MICA's nationally recognized art educators and artists, students conduct qualitative case studies on student learning in art and create a body of thematically focused studio work. This 33-credit program consists of two six-week summer residencies, course work conducted online during the fall and spring semesters, and a winter seminar conducted on MICA's campus over a long weekend in January.
