The Department of Arts Administration, Education and Policy at The Ohio State University has three highly regarded graduate programs (MA in Art Education, MA in Arts Policy and Administration, and PhD in Arts Administration, Education and Policy) and two undergraduate programs (Bachelor’s in Art Education and BA in Arts Management). We pride ourselves on offering comprehensive, critical, and interdisciplinary coverage of the two primary fields of study in the department – Art Education and Arts Policy and Administration – with world-class faculty in key areas of specialization, on producing accomplished PhDs and career-ready MAs, and on offering undergraduates a rich learning environment based in research for preparation for career and/or graduate study.

AAEP is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art & Design (NASAD); National Council of Accredited Teacher Education (NCATE); and is under review for Council for the Accreditation of Education Programs (CAEP).
