The Mission of the Art Education Program at the University of New Mexico
The Art Education Program at the University of New Mexico prepares art professionals to meet the needs of diverse populations in the state and nation.  The program supports art professionals in their examination of multiple approaches to art education; these include but are not limited to image focused, discipline-based and issues-based art education, as well as visual culture.  The undergraduate prog
ram educates students toward becoming reflective art teachers who can encourage students to develop art works in response to their experiences.  The graduate program, culminating in a Master of Arts in Art Education degree, supports students with a wide range of interests.  Students can focus their investigations on making and studying art in cultural, social, and historical contexts.  We believe art professionals need to maintain a life-long connection with visual art.

The Mission of the College of Education
Our mission is the study and practice of education through teaching, research, and service.  We address critical education issues; test new ideas and approaches to teaching and learning; educate professionals who can facilitate human growth and development in schools, homes, communities, and work places and prepare students for participation in a complex and challenging society.  In carrying out our mission we value excellence in all that we do; diversity of people and perspectives; relationships of service, accountability, collaboration, and advocacy; the discovery, discussion, and dissemination of ideas; and innovation in teaching, technology, and leadership.
