Support the Art Education Program
Studio art students have the option to teach K-12 art by earning their K-12 teaching certification. They then have the capacity to pursue graduate level work in an M.A. or M.Ed. program in art education or MS degrees in Education. Our curriculum, which is fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), is designed to prepare students for real-world success as artists, designers, art historians, art teachers and museum and gallery professionals. Each area teaches required foundational skills and techniques while informing students of current trends in their respective field. Through the formal and contextual analysis of art and its interdisciplinary connections, our students obtain the critical thinking, research and writing skills that form the basis of all professional careers.
