The Master of Education with a Major in Art Education at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture at Temple University is a NASAD-accredited program with an option for students to pursue Pennsylvania certification in art, grades Kindergarten through 12.


Program Overview

The Art Education program at Temple University offers a pathway for K-12 teachers who want to hone a specialization in art or anyone who wants to add art teaching credentials.

The program gives students access to the resources of both a world-class art school and Temple University, a large public research university. Students develop their understanding of a broad range of art learners and expand their repertoire of teaching strategies. Grounded in both research and the studio, a Tyler M.Ed. gives students the training needed to teach art at the K-12 level and cultivate arts practices beyond formal educational institutions.

Tyler students take full advantage of the school’s location in Philadelphia and the city’s rich array of schools, communities, museums, galleries, and artists, opening up opportunities for artistic growth, research, networking, and jobs. The Tyler faculty is committed to urban art education and the power of collaborating with communities. Tyler students not only learn how to teach art and grow as artists, but they also learn how to affect positive change in the communities where they work.
