Degree Plan

The art degree program is designed for those students who are planning careers in art education. The course of study enables the student to experience the creative process in a variety of disciplines. This exposure to the techniques, aesthetic considerations, and traditional expressions in various media provides the student with an excellent foundation and the prerequisite experience necessary for teaching art. In addition to the studio experiences shaping the student's own creative growth as an artist, the courses in art history and education develop his or her insight and perspective as a teacher.



The art degree program prepares teachers in art from early childhood through to the 12th grade in public and private schools. Additional career opportunities are available through education programs in public and private museums and other institutions, including those that coordinate Artist Residency programs, which provide flexible work opportunities for artists in the community.
