The Bachelor of Science in Art Education is designed to develop students as both artists and educators, and to enable them to make historical inquiries, critical judgments and aesthetic responses to art. Contingent upon the successful completion of the National Teacher Examination, graduates will receive K-12 art education certification.
The well-balanced curriculum includes courses in drawing, design and additional studio arts; art history; art and professional education; and three field experiences. Students will learn to write contemporary curriculum to meet discipline-based art education standards as well as outcome-based standards, and receive relevant computer experiences. Elective courses allow individuals to personalize their EU experience.
NOTE: Individuals interested in careers in art therapy should plan to pursue the BS degree in art education with a minor in psychology or may wish to earn a BFA degree in a studio area with teacher certification by attending an additional semester. Edinboro University offers a Master of Arts in Counseling-Art Therapy, as well as a MA with a concentration in Art Education.
The Bachelor of Science in Art Education is a four year undergraduate program leading to art education teaching certification (kindergarten to twelfth grade). The philosophy of the program is that the art teacher should be an artist/art educator. In this program students develop their skills as artists, and learn to make historical inquiries, critical judgments, and aesthetic responses to art.
The purpose of the Art History Minor is to encourage the student to develop a deeper understanding of the visual culture and context of a range of historical periods, media, and cultural perspectives that will serve to enrich and broaden their performance in their major program.
The General Art minor builds on a solid foundation of Art and Art History coursework, allowing students to pursue a unique direction that may not be possible with a minor in a single specific discipline or concentration area.
