Masters Degree Program in Art Education

The studies offer those involved in art education – educators, creators, and artists – with a profound understanding of contemporary aspects of the fields of the arts and art education and with the cultural heritage of ethnic communities. The courses create a multidisciplinary interface that encourages discussion of the role of visual images in structuring collective and ethnic cultural identities and in shaping the heritage of the past and the future. The studies provide tools for understanding and for critically examining the visual domain. In addition to study tours and visits to museums and galleries, the program also includes practical experience in art work and in research writing. The program provides the graduates with tools allowing them to integrate in diverse environments in the field of the contemporary arts, including: schools, colleges, galleries and museums, cultural institutions, informal educational frameworks, and social and community organizations.

The program is intended for educators and creators from the field of the arts: the visual arts, dance, cinema, architecture, theater, and design. Students with a BA in other related fields will be required to take complementary courses. We offer three tracks:

  • M.Ed. in Art Education – Non-Thesis Track.
  • M.Ed. in Art Education – Thesis (Research) Track


The track is intended for outstanding students in the program who obtained a minimum grade of 85 in all the methodological courses and at least 90 in the seminar course in their first year. The track includes writing a research thesis.

  • M.Ed. in Art Education in the Anthroposophic Track – Art and Art Education.


​The program has a modular structure that seeks to meet the students’ interests and skills, based around three study clusters: foundation studies, advanced studies in art education, and advanced practical and theoretical art studies. The different courses examine the types of connections between images and words and the relations between curators, artists, art teachers, activists, art commentators or critics. The program also examines the impact of their activities on the definition of art, the nature of art discourse, the perception of the social functions of art, and its role in the community.
