This major provides students with the opportunity to become skilled artists as well as to prepare for teaching art in K–12 settings. Studio, education, and liberal arts courses are required study. In addition to the academic requirements, students complete two 7-week practicums in the field with an Art Education Department-approved mentor. One field placement at the elementary level and one secondary placement when successfully completed meets the Massachusetts Department of Education requirement for the initial Visual Arts teaching license. In addition to formal placements, students are encouraged to volunteer in art classes in area schools and community events and to participate in the on-campus Saturday Studio program.
