Towson University has suspended the program and is no longer accepting students in this program.
The Masters of Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts Infusion (MAIAI) is a one of a kind, graduate program designed for classroom teachers, arts specialists, teaching artists, administrators and arts entrepreneurs. The program deepens and extends the skills and techniques of the arts disciplines through a unique blend of professional development course work and advanced, trans-disciplinary arts practice.
MAIAI builds upon the successful work of our Arts Integration Institute and the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate that Towson has been offering since 1999. MAIAI reflects an interdisciplinary approach to arts education integrating a variety of art forms (theatre, dance, music, visual arts) into PreK-12 classrooms and beyond. This program is consistent with Towson University’s mission to provide programs that enhance teaching skills and professional development for educators. Graduates will be collaborators equipped to lead a transformation in teaching, learning and school reform through arts integration.
MAIAI is a part-time program, with courses offered on campus exclusively in the evenings to accommodate the working professional.
- Students will demonstrate an understanding and knowledge of the complex meanings of arts integration and proficiency in linking them with current PK‐12 curriculum standards.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to employ principles and elements of arts disciplines to introduce learners to the methodologies and interrelationships among art forms, as well as to increase comfort level and appreciation for the importance of the arts as core to a complete education.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to marshal the creativity and critical thinking inherent in the arts to motivate students both in the arts and in other curricular areas.
