The graduate programs (M.Ed. and M.A.) in Art Education are part of the graduate offerings in the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy. The research interests of faculty in Art Education are diverse. They encourage a wide spectrum of student inquiry: art curriculum, early childhood, teacher education, First Nations art and education, histories of art education, multiculturalism, museum and gallery education, perception and cognition, studio practices, technology and visual culture, theory/practice relationships, and gender studies.
Part-time and full-time study options are available.

In addition to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies requirements, the program normally requires:
