General Description

Licensed art education teachers who complete an art education master’s degree at Kent State University develop a focused competence in the visual arts as well as an intellectual understanding of the history and current issues of the field of art education. Students complete a course on quantitative and qualitative approaches to research then select to do a research study with a thesis or a master’s project option. The thesis culminates in a document that is based on scholarly research of an art education related topic. The master’s project involves action research, which focuses on participant/researcher studies in curriculum, classroom settings, grant implementation, and/or community-based projects.
