This program prepares candidates to teach the arts in Grades K-12. Visual Arts Education majors engage in a rigorous program of study emphasizing teaching models in all four disciplines of art content (art history, art criticism, aesthetics, and art production), content research, lesson and unit plan development, assessment, field observations, and authentic teaching experiences at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The introductory course for this program is EDSEC 150. Students must maintain a 2.5 GPA to complete the program. Students must make a minimum grade of C in all art education courses to progress to the next course. All students must pass the CASA exam before taking a 300 level art education course.
