Art Education Major

Art Education Major

Majoring in Art Education involves the study of pedagogy, or the method and practice of teaching. You’ll develop the skills and insights to become an effective art teacher (K-12) and lifelong learner. You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are important for any teaching career as you take 88 to 94 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Arts degree, and the art education curriculum meets the Minnesota Department of Education requirements for a teaching credential (passage of standardized examinations of content and pedagogy are also required).

You’ll also keep it real in a series of classes, field experiences, and student teaching opportunities that make for an effective blend of theory and practice, plus participation in a senior art major group exhibition. Because we design our art education program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant degree if you’re considering a career teaching art in grades K-12 within private or public elementary and secondary schools.
