Description Our mission is to inspire, engage and provoke educators to understand, inquire into, and model curricular and pedagogical possibilities of deep involvement with the visual arts in culture and society.  Within a large research orientated university situated on traditional Musqueam land, the Art Education Program strives to: - Stimulate and conduct research within a vibrant and collaborative research community that focuses on methodologies and content relevant to the visual arts in culture and society. - Provide for, model, and develop socially responsible and ecologically aware exemplary teaching practices in and across contexts with a focus on the visual arts in culture and society. - Provide leadership, and engage with local, national, and international arts and culture organizations and professionals. The research interests of faculty in Art Education are diverse. They encourage a wide spectrum of student inquiry: art based research, a/r/tography, art curriculum, early childhood, teacher education, First Nations art and education, histories of art education, multiculturalism, museum and gallery education, perception and cognition, studio practices, technology and visual culture, theory/practice relationships, and gender studies. The MEd is a course-based degree which does not require a research thesis. The University of British Columbia Art Education Program ranks in the top eight in North America and is one of two PhD programs in Canada (Concordia is our counterpart).
