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.


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.
