The exhibition will be included in the research/thesis course. Changes reflect a program that addresses diverse student needs, including those who have BSE-Art certification and those who do not. These changes also allow practicing art teachers greater flexibility and access to the program.

Program description for catalog (if changed):
The M. Ed. in Art Education emphasizes academic Mastery of Art Education with a research exhibition requirement. The program attracts talented, dedicated, and self-motivated graduate students who wish to become more informed about pedagogy, studio studies and professional research. The conceptual framework advocates a model of art education that encourages graduate students to become leaders in their field. "Teacher as Instructional leader" is Mansfield University's theme for advanced teacher education. The candidate for the M.Ed. in Art Education must complete a minimum of 33 semester hours of approved study. To demonstrate proficiency in the studio portion of the discipline, both the Research and Thesis options require an exhibition of original student artwork completed during the Mansfield University M.Ed. program.
