Required courses outside the Program (6 points minimum):
Students in the Ed.M program must fulfill TC's "breadth" requirement by taking three (3) courses offered outside Art and Art Education at Teachers College. Any course that does not start with A&HA qualifies as a breadth or out-of-program course. Each of these courses must be taken for at least two (2) credit points.
Students enrolled in the Ed.M program leading to State certification in administration or supervision of art education programs are required to complete six (6) course points in the Department of Organization and Leadership and/or Program in Educational Administration, nine (9) course points in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching, and six (6) course points in the Department of Arts and Humanities (see Ed.M Supervision and Administration check sheet for specific courses). In addition, students must complete A&HA 6021 Seminar: Administration and supervision of an arts program and an approved arts administration and supervision internship, as well as satisfy the remaining requirements for the Ed.M degree.
In addition, Ed.M. students may choose to take a museum concentration as part of their degree. This concentration explores the art museum as an educational institution, introduces students to object-based teaching and learning, and offers them an overview of educational programs in museums throughout New York City. The museum concentration consists of the following four courses, which must be taken in addition to other Ed.M. requirements:
- A&HA 4090 Museum education issues I: Culture of art museums
- A&HA 5090 Museum education issues II: Missions and standards
- A&HA 5804 Museums as resource
- A&HA 5085 Varieties of visual experience: Museums and education
Students in this concentration must secure and complete and internship or residence in a museum or gallery (in consultation with their advisor).
