New M.A. in Art, Education and Community Practice
The Department of Art and Art Professions at Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, New York University announces a new 34-credit M.A. programme in Art, Education, and Community Practice that catalyzes social change through the arts. Combining the fields of art, education, and social activism, this innovative programme positions the work of an artist as having social and pedagogical impact, and the work of an educator as a creative practice. It focuses on framing and supporting the artist as an activist, an educator, and a change agent. The programme is designed for studio practitioners, educators, community organizers, and social activists who want to be deeply engaged in both critical theory and pedagogy, to inform how they address the audiences and communities with whom they collaborate. Involving faculty from across NYU schools and programmes, the M.A. in Art, Education, and Community Practice offers the unique opportunity to work with practicing artists and educators in community-based and neighbourhood settings. Situated in the East Village in New York City, students are able to design and implement community-based projects in collaboration with vital cultural and educational organizations deeply committed to the neighbourhood's groundbreaking artistic traditions.
The flexible programme of study can be tailored to student interests and completed in as a few as 12 months as a full-time student or in two years as a part-time student. The programme begins in the fall semester. The programme joins two existing M.A. programmes in Art Education.
Scholarships are available. Application deadline is 1February 2014.
