Masters of Art in Teaching
This 60-credit program is philosophically rooted in each student's experience of making, critiquing, and interpreting art. The program's focus is not limited to schools and K-12 art education, but encompasses the adult learner population as well as the impact art education has in community and museum settings. MAT students discover first-hand how humans of all ages learn and develop through the visual arts. The program is socially engaged, with a progressive curriculum designed for future art educators who are determined to form a solid bridge between the personal experience of art and its capacity to enrich the lives of today's communities and their individual members. Core courses lay the foundation in education, psychology and art theory as they apply to formal instruction and informal program development in a wide range of media and subject areas. Every student receives intensive experience in studio arts to develop artistry and technical skills, forming a basis of understanding for the practice of teaching. Advanced "special topics" coursework focuses on current issues in art policy, the history of art, visual culture, lifelong learning, and their interaction in the contemporary artistic culture in our society.
The Corcoran College of Art + Design has been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
