Art Education Program

Housed within the Department of Art in the School of Fine & Performing Arts, the Art Education Program is a vibrant community of dedicated professors and students involved in creative work and independent scholarship. The program is contemporary in its approaches to best practices in curriculum and theory.

Our majors share studios and equipment with Fine Arts majors and are taught by the Department of Art's internationally renowned faculty. Many of our students pursue dual baccalaureate degrees in Fine Art and Art Education, or minor in Art History, making them more marketable when they enter the job market.
