Fine Arts Education

About the Programs

Art Project, Hofstra Art Education Hofstra's School of Education on Long Island, New York, offers a bachelor of science, master of science and a master of arts in fine arts education.

Art education students are taught by Hofstra University faculty from the departments of fine arts as well as education. Since class size is small, students enjoy individualized attention from their professors. Most classes are scheduled in the late afternoon and early evening for the convenience of those with daytime employment.

Hofstra's art education programs embrace a view of art that celebrates basic art traditions and materials as well as the ever-changing forms of popular art and culture. Foundational to the program is an understanding of the role of art in the perceptual, emotional and cognitive development of children and adolescents. An understanding of aesthetics and art history and how these subjects can help children make meaning of and respond to their world are central to the program. Competency in the arts as well as guiding students to be artful educators is of critical importance. Hofstra's art education students study major disciplines of the field of education, such as special education, theories of cognition and learning and integrated learning. Additionally, literacy and information technology are incorporated throughout the program. The program prepares teachers to be strong advocates for the arts.
