Art Education provides students with a strong foundation in art studio and art history, along with the theory and practices of art education. Art Education graduates are prepared for careers in K-12 art education. Careers The nationally accredited and state certified art education teacher licensure program in the School of Art & Visual Studies provides a unique four-year undergraduate program in which more than 65 percent of our students graduate with a dual degree in studio art and art education. Our program in art education prepares students in the liberal arts tradition with courses that encourage creative thinking, intellectual reasoning, and exploration of humanities, culture and global dynamics. These skills fuel a passion for helping students to achieve global competitiveness in collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking. What You'll Study Students in our art education program spend their first two years studying the fundamentals of studio art. Before graduation, they’ll participate in a group exhibition. The final two years in the program will be spent grounded in art education theory and practice, including a classroom teaching practicum and courses in educational pedagogy. With leading-edge educator skills, mastery of art studio techniques and knowledge in visual studies, our students are on track to becoming artist educators that engage and prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century.
