If you love to express yourself visually and have a desire to share that passion with children, an art education degree prepares you for a career serving others. As an art education major, you’ll receive a firm foundation in painting, ceramics, and drawing to build a strong portfolio and find your artistic voice. You’ll also choose advanced classes that speak to you, whether in photography or graphic arts. Required education courses prepare you to work with students of all backgrounds. Passionate faculty nurture your growth as an artist and a teacher each step of the way.
Our art education students enjoy small class sizes and one-on-one mentoring in the classroom. The retro Donald and Maria Cox Visual Arts Building provides light-filled studios to inspire your creativity. Rigorous education coursework prepares you to pass the Praxis exams for teacher licensure to begin your teaching career after graduation.
