          Art Education



          Art Education students working with children

          The Bachelor of Science in Art Education major offers two concentrations designed to prepare students as K-12 educators and cultural workers in the arts. Students develop as artists and interlocutors, enabled to make critical judgments, historical inquiries, and aesthetic responses to the expressive arts.

          Students who complete the Teacher Certification concentration are highly qualified to earn a state department of education instructional certificate to teach art in per-kindergarten through twelfth grade teaching-learning situations.

          The Community Arts concentration prepares graduates for work in museums, arts agencies, and community centers.

          The well-balanced curriculum includes courses in visual arts production, art history, and professional education as well as course options in related fields of anthropology, education, psychology, and sociology. Both concentrations included field experiences, student teaching or internships in the arts.  Students develop leadership skills, organize programs, and write curriculum to meet the needs of their constituents and the expectations of the National Core Arts Standards. Elective courses allow individuals to personalize their EU experience.

          The Pre-Art Therapy major prepares students for professional practice upon completion of an additional MA degree. Courses for this major include studio arts, art history, art education, art therapy, and psychology as well as internship opportunities.

          Edinboro University offers a Master of Arts in Counseling-Art Therapy, as well as a MA with a concentration in Art Education.
