Art is a critically important part of youth education. It stimulates development, fuels
imagination, nurtures self-esteem and builds valuable life skills.
In this program, you will build your own artistic talents and prepare to teach studio
art and design in schools, community centers, galleries, museums and other art
organizations. Rigorous studio training will develop your technical skills, while
coursework in the College of Education will equip you with the teaching methods that
you will need for your future classroom.
Graduates of this program are eligible to become a certified K-12 art teacher in
elementary and secondary public schools.
