Our Teacher Academy offers one of the area's few art education teacher licensure programs. Students may prepare to teach at the elementary, middle/junior high or high school level with K-12 certification.
The art education program prepares you as an artist in your own right, and as a future teacher who will help your students develop their own visual literacy. This program culminates with a year long Residency involving art classroom placements at two different schools and a comprehensive oral examination.
Praxis Exam Required Prior to Admittance
