The Arts

The arts programs at Teachers College view the presence of art and music in the study of education as a vital necessity in nurturing human growth and development throughout a person's lifespan. Courses in these programs examine the different environments in which various art and music forms reach their audiences - in private and public schools, colleges, museums, community arts centers, and hospitals.

Our distinguished faculty of scholars and practitioners guides students in our practice-based studio spaces.

Graduates go on to rewarding professions as directors of education, consultants, curriculum designers, and program managers in schools, universities, government bureaus, cultural institutions, non-profit agencies, and museums.
