The MST in visual arts–all grades (art education) leads to initial/professional New York state certification in visual arts for grades K through 12. This certification allows applicants to teach in New York state public schools. The program features pedagogical studies, studio inquiry, and student teaching. The program prepares students to meet the national, state, and regional need for teachers of the visual arts and is designed for accomplished art educators and advocates for art and learning in all grades. The program is nationally accredited and is for teachers in art education who hold a BFA or BA (art major) degree. Classes begin each August and conclude in May. Graduates of teacher education programs at RIT have a 96 percent pass rate on the NY State Teacher Certification examinations.
