About

Our mission of the Art Education program at University of British Columbia is to inspire, engage and provoke educators to understand, inquire into, and model curricular and pedagogical possibilities of deep involvement with the visual arts in culture and society.

Overview

Within a large research orientated university situated on traditional Musqueam land, the Art Education Program from University of British Columbia strives to:

  • Stimulate and conduct research within a vibrant and collaborative research community that focuses on methodologies and content relevant to the visual arts in culture and society.
  • Provide for, model, and develop socially responsible and ecologically aware exemplary teaching practices in and across contexts with a focus on the visual arts in culture and society.
  • Provide leadership, and engage with local, national, and international arts and culture organizations and professionals.

The research interests of faculty in Art Education are diverse. They encourage a wide spectrum of student inquiry: art based research, a/r/tography, 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.The MEd is a course-based degree which does not require a research thesis.
