The Department of Art and Art Professions at NYU Steinhardt welcomes applications to its 30-to-34-credit MA program in Art, Education, and Community Practice, which catalyzes social change through the arts.

Combining the fields of art, education, and social activism, this innovative program positions the work of an artist as having social, political, and pedagogical impact. It focuses on framing and supporting the artist as an activist, an educator, and an agent of change.

The program is designed for studio practitioners, designers, artist-educators, community organizers, and social activists who want to be deeply engaged in activist art practices, critical theory, and critical pedagogy to inform how they address the audiences and communities with whom they collaborate. Involving faculty from across NYU schools and programs, the MA in Art, Education, and Community Practice offers the unique opportunity to work with practicing activist artists and educators in community-based and neighborhood settings.

Situated in the East Village in New York City, students are able to design and implement community-based projects in collaboration with vital cultural and educational organizations deeply committed to the neighborhood's groundbreaking artistic activist traditions.

The flexible program of study can be tailored to student interests and completed in as a few as 12 months as a full-time student or in two years as a part-time student. The program begins in the fall semester.
