Our programs promote understanding of the arts and visual culture for all students through a curriculum that is research-based, interdisciplinary, and intent on collaboration with communities both within and outside the University, nation, and world. This content is explored through the following: pedagogical theory and practices; critical inquiry of historical and contemporary artworks; the analysis of public and educational policy in the arts and cultures; assessment of art education; awareness of comparative international practice; and inquiry in the philosophical, historical, and policy foundations of art education and cultural policy.
