Special requirements for graduate school art education program admission.

To be considered for the  M.A. in Art Education degree program, applicants must have earned a baccalaureate degree or completed substantial undergraduate study in studio art or related areas (graphic design, media arts, etc.) from an accredited four-year college.  The application also includes a portfolio of artwork demonstrating depth of accomplishment in a chosen medium, with some breadth of experience in additional media.

Portfolio Requirements

The portfolio should contain 12–15 examples of recent artwork. Please email your portfolio to the faculty as links to your website or digital files: artedma@adelphi.edu.  Alternately, you may submit digital files on disk. Local applicants may also present the portfolio in person, as this provides the student with an opportunity to visit art and education facilities and meet program faculty.

If mailing portfolio, send to:
