ART 6550 - Graduate Project in Art Education

In this course a student conducts independent inquiry and prepares a written project in which a problem of some significance to the field is investigated and reported. This research is conducted under supervision by graduate faculty in art education. The project is to be composed of research conducted by the student for the purpose of demonstrating knowledge and understanding of research methods in art education, and knowledge of issues and developments in the field of art education. The project proposal is to be written and approved in ART 6530. The completed work must be approved by a committee of graduate faculty. Students who plan to work with human subjects in their research study must abide by the rules and practices established for Western Michigan University. The project itself may employ qualitative and or quantitative research methods on a topic or problem directly related to art education. This would include a phenomenological study of students in an art class context; an analysis of a premise or construct traced through the literature of art education; a survey of attitudes, beliefs, or practices conducted among arts education professionals; or the preparation and field testing of an extensive curriculum module. The use of digital media in the final form of the presentation is encouraged and will be negotiated with graduate faculty.
