The Art Education program embraces the college teacher education model as well as the tenets and principles of Discipline-based Art Education and the ideals and values associated with education that are multicultural, innovative, and creative. The use of new instructional technologies is also emphasized. The faculty believes that art teachers of the 21st century must possess a commitment to educational reform that includes the pursuit of new ideas in the teaching of art, the use of the new instructional technologies, and a commitment to social change that includes addressing the needs of an increasingly diverse community. Students graduate from the program as skilled artists who continue to be productive artists as well as practicing art educators.
Those entering the College of Education and Human Services must meet University admissions requirements as well as specific COEHS admissions criteria.
*As of spring 2016, there will be no new admits to this major.
