Division of Art Education

Our Art Education program provides innovative training for students seeking careers as arts educators in a variety of venues, from elementary and secondary schools to museums and community-based programs. Art education plays an ever-expanding role in institutions and communities around the world, and the range of professional opportunities for graduates of our program is increasingly diverse.

At the undergraduate level, the Art Education curriculum culminates in a degree in Visual Art Studies, which encompasses K–12 arts instruction and certification, as well as coursework in Studio Art. At the graduate level, students receive a comprehensive education in arts instruction and choose a single curricular focus that provides skills and experience specific to employment in schools, museums, or community-based programs.
