GAINESVILLE, FL (July 15, 2010) – The University of Florida (UF) College of Fine Arts announces the new online Master of Arts in Art Education degree program online with classes to begin this month.

UF’s online Master’s in Art Education program develops art educators, artists, and art advocates who are uniquely positioned to thrive in varied modern learning environments as transformative art educators. The program’s unique curriculum emphasizes the development of teaching techniques alongside studio courses that challenge students to develop their art, learn new art making techniques, and methods of instruction. Through the program, students discover and explore ways that digital technologies can be used to deliver impactful art learning experiences.

The program’s online format delivers a robust educational experience that is flexible and accessible for working professionals who need to work while completing their degree.

“Our students will be engaged in a high-tech, high-touch educational environment, with rich studio experiences in traditional and digital media. Without compromising the traditional humanity of art making, our graduates will empower students to express themselves in ways not possible before,” said Professor Craig Roland of the University of Florida.

In addition to the traditional curriculum, the online Masters in Art Education program offers the Educator Preparation Institute (EPI) Track, which prepares individuals to receive teaching certification in Florida’s public schools. For more information, please visit the program’s new website at
