EIU Launches Master of Arts in Art Hybrid Degree

May-22-2014

Eastern Illinois University’s Department of Art and the School of Continuing Education have launched a Master of Arts in Art hybrid degree program.

This new degree program allows students to take courses online during the fall and spring semesters. A one-week on-campus studio session will be required during the summer.

The program is designed for working professionals who want to continue to work while earning their advanced degree.

The program features two different options -- art education and community arts. The art education option provides certified art teachers with the opportunity to further their knowledge about contemporary art and art education practices. The community art option provides those who work as museum educators, art center educators, artists, community workers and other art-based careers the opportunity to gain professional development to teach art in multiple settings.

There are no out-of-state tuition costs for the program and those interested are not limited by geographic proximity to EIU. The art department faculty are full-time teaching artists and scholars. They have extensive teaching experience and will provide personal attention to students to ensure a successful academic experience.

For information, or to apply to the program, contact Patricia Belleville at pkbelleville@eiu.edu or 217-581-7009, or visit here.
