1 Graduate Faculty Committee Document 1270 Approved May, 13, 2013 RECOMMENDATION OF THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON GRADUATE COURSE AND CURRICULUM, THE PECK SCHOOL OF THE ARTS COURSE AND CURRICULUM COMMITTEE, AND THE FACULTY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ART AND DESIGN FOR CHANGES TO THE MASTER OF SCIENCE IN ART EDUCATION I. Current Graduate School Bulletin Copy Master of Science in Art Education ADMISSION An applicant must meet Graduate School requirements plus these departmental requirements to be considered for admission to the program. Applicants must send completed application form and official transcripts to the Graduate School. The following materials are also needed to consider an applicant for admission to the program and these must be sent to the Art and Design Department Graduate Studies Office: Evidence (i.e., photocopy) of certification to teach art or admission into Teacher Certification Program in the School of Education. An example of writing skill via a paper presented at a professional meeting, a printed art curriculum guide or instructional strategies, a research report, a school report, a published article, or comparable evidence. Presentation of a CD portfolio of applicant's original work (minimum 10, maximum 20 images) and, if an experienced teacher, the work of one's students (minimum 10, maximum 20 images). Explanatory or descriptive annotations must accompany images. Three (3) letters of recommendation. Applicants may be admitted with specific program-defined course deficiencies provided that the deficiencies amount to no more than two courses. Upon admission to the program, the student is expected to satisfy deficiency requirements within three enrolled semesters. The Graduate School and the Office of Graduate Studies in Art and Design monitor the deficiencies. No course credits earned in making up deficiencies may be counted as program credits required for the degree. MAJOR PROFESSOR AS ADVISOR Immediately upon admission the graduate student must contact the head of the Art Education Area for initial advising and aid in selection of a major professor from the faculty of the Art Education Area. Upon completion of 9 graduate credits, each student must make arrangements for a Graduate Faculty member in the Art Education Area to serve as the major professor and must notify the Art and Design Department Office of Graduate Studies of that professor's willingness to serve in such a capacity. Immediately thereafter, each student, in consultation with the major professor, must organize a thesis committee. This committee consists of the major professor and two additional faculty members from the Art and Design Department. If the student's major professor takes leave of absence, receives a sabbatical, or leaves the University, the student should contact the Head of the Art Education Area for advice in selecting a new major professor.

2 Graduate Faculty Committee Document 1270 p. 2 Approved May 13, 2013 CREDITS AND COURSES The minimum requirement for the M.S. in Art Education degree is 30 graduate credits, 21 of which must be in the Art and Design Department. The student, in consultation with the major professor, is responsible for planning a 15 credit (minimum) program of study in art education with a specific focus in curriculum and instruction (which would include computer/video technology), exceptional education, early childhood education, multi-cultural instruction and/or museum education. Coursework should include a 9 credit (minimum) concentration of course work in studio art or, with major professor's written approval, in a related field such as art history, architecture, film, aesthetics, criticism, anthropology, sociology, or psychology. TRANSFER OF CREDITS Upon admission, an applicant may be permitted to transfer a maximum of 12 graduate credits earned at another institution. However, the student must apply to the Graduate School for an evaluation of such credits to determine if they are acceptable for transfer to the M.S. program. THESIS All M.S. in Art Ed. students must develop, present and defend a thesis to complete their degree. Three thesis options are available: a written thesis that emphasizes scholarly research; an applied study that includes the development and implementation of a significant teaching strategy or curricular model which is reported on in a written thesis; a thesis exhibition in which a student prepares a gallery presentation of a body of work created in studio courses. Thesis option should be selected by a student and approved by the major advisor before 15 graduate credits are earned. Students who elect one of the written thesis options must have at least two members of the Art Education Area faculty on their thesis committee and one from a related field of study. While studio courses are open to all graduate students who meet the prerequisites, those who elect the thesis exhibition option must be reviewed and accepted for thesis work by faculty of the studio area in which they wish to create a body of work to exhibit. Students must also complete a minimum of 15 credits of study in that studio area, participate in at least one Graduate Review before completing degree requirements, have at least one member of their studio area on their thesis committee, and meet the exhibition requirements of the Art and Design Department Graduate Studies Program. COMPREHENSIVE EXAM All M.S. in Art Education students must pass a final oral examination in defense of the thesis. Students who elect the exhibition thesis option must pass both an oral and a written examination. TIME LIMIT The Department of Visual Art requires that the student complete all degree requirements within five years of initial enrollment.

3 Graduate Faculty Committee Document 1270 p. 3 Approved May 13, 2013 II. Summary of Proposed Changes In the revised M.S. in Art Education program, the thesis exhibition will no longer be a capstone option. The faculty feels that the emphasis on scholarly research and applied studies is more appropriate to current research in the field. The minimum requirement for the M.S. in Art Education will remain at 30 graduate credits, with six credits in Art Education foundations, nine credits in current topics and thematically related studio workshops, and six credits in thesis development. The student, in consultation with the major professor, is responsible for planning nine additional credits (minimum) in a chosen program of study in art education with a specific focus on Pre K-12 or community environments. These requirements replace the rather broad and unspecified 21 credits previously required in the Art and Design Department, 15 of which were credits in a program of study in art education and nine credits of studio or a related field. The Art Education faculty and the Director of Graduate Studies are beginning work on the redevelopment and reinstating of the Ph.D. in Art Education. The program is currently located in the School of Education, so the process will require extensive discussion between all parties. III. Justification for Proposed Changes With the hire of new faculty in Art Education, the M.S. in Art Education program is being revised to bring it into alignment with the program's newly developed urban arts education and social justice mission and to respond to recent changes in Wisconsin certification laws and other market driven changes. IV. Resources Required No additional resources are required to implement these changes. V. New Bulletin Copy MASTER OF SCIENCE IN ART EDUCATION OVERVIEW The Master of Science (M.S.) in Art Education is a 30-credit program with advanced work in art education and the studio arts. The M.S. with a major in art education offers two separate program options. All options require applicants to have completed a bachelor s degree in the visual arts or a related field, and to be admitted to the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Graduate School. Additional background requirements depend on the option the applicant intends to pursue, as follows: Pre K-12 Art Education Focus is designed to enhance the expertise of practicing teachers. The program combines theory, practice, and research in an effort to develop leaders as teachers-artists-researchers in the field. Community-Based Art Education Focus is designed for those who desire careers as educators in community art programs, including museums. The program looks at theories and practices that have impacted community-based art education.

4 Graduate Faculty Committee Document 1270 p. 4 Approved May 13, 2013 ADMISSION An applicant must meet Graduate School requirements and have an undergraduate degree in art education, art history, studio arts, or related field to be considered for admission to the program. The following materials are also required and must be sent to the Department of Art and Design, Office of Graduate Studies, Peck School of the Arts, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, P.O. Box 413, Milwaukee, Wisconsin (See department website for specific directions.) An example of writing skills --Appropriate examples include: a paper presented at a professional meeting, an art curriculum guide, a research paper, or a published article. A CD portfolio of applicant's original work (minimum 10, maximum 20 images) and, if an experienced teacher, the work of one's students (minimum 10, maximum 20 images). Explanatory or descriptive annotations must accompany images. Three (3) letters of recommendation. For the PreK-12 Art Education Focus only: A photocopy of certification to teach art or proof of admission into the Teacher Certification Program in the School of Education Application deadlines for admission to the program are February 1 for the following fall semester and October 7 for the following spring semester. If applicants are interested in competing for assistantships and fellowships, a January 7 deadline should be used. Applicants may be admitted with specific program-defined course deficiencies provided that the deficiencies amount to no more than two courses. Upon admission to the program, the student is expected to satisfy deficiency requirements within three enrolled semesters. The Graduate School and the Office of Graduate Studies in Art and Design monitor the deficiencies. No course credits earned in making up deficiencies may be counted as program credits required for the degree. MAJOR PROFESSOR AS ADVISOR Immediately upon admission, the graduate student must contact the Coordinator of Graduate Programs in Art and Design for initial advising and aid in selection of a major professor from the faculty of the Art Education area. Upon completion of 9 graduate credits, each student must make arrangements for a graduate faculty member in the Art Education Area to serve as the major professor and must notify the Department of Art and Design Office of Graduate Studies of that professor's willingness to serve in such a capacity. Immediately thereafter, each student, in consultation with the major professor, must organize a thesis committee. The committee should consist of the major professor from art education, another faculty member from art education, and one additional faculty member, supporting the major area of concentration, for a minimum of three total. The additional faculty member may come from outside art education, outside the Department of Art and Design, or outside of the university. Members from outside the university community must have credentials that further a student s research agenda and must be chosen in consultation with the major professor. If the student's major professor takes a leave of absence, receives a sabbatical, or leaves the university, the student should contact the Coordinator of Graduate Programs in Art Education for advice in selecting a new major professor.

5 Graduate Faculty Committee Document 1270 p. 5 Approved May 13, 2013 CREDITS AND COURSES The minimum requirement for the M.S. in Art Education degree is 30 graduate credits, 6 credits of which must be in foundations in art education, 9 credits in current topics and thematically related studio workshops, and 6 credits in thesis development. The student, in consultation with the major professor, is responsible for also planning 9 additional credits (minimum) in a chosen program of study in art education with a specific focus on Pre K-12 or community environments. Please refer to Master of Science in Art Education Handbook for further information. TRANSFER OF CREDITS Upon admission, an applicant may be permitted to transfer a maximum of 12 graduate credits earned at another institution, or as a UWM non-degree graduate student, subject to transfer credit requirements and department approval. THESIS All M.S. in Art Education students must develop, present, and defend a thesis to complete their degree. Two thesis options are available: a written thesis that emphasizes scholarly research; or an applied study that includes the development and implementation of a significant teaching strategy or curricular model that is reported on in a written thesis. Thesis option should be selected by a student and approved by the major advisor before 15 graduate credits are earned. Students must have at least two members of the Art Education area faculty on their thesis committee and one from a related field of study. COMPREHENSIVE EXAM All M.S. in Art Education students must pass a final oral examination in defense of the thesis.
