Degree Description

Art Education Certification

Art Education Certification

Surround yourself with paint, clay, charcoal, paper, wood, glitter, computers – basically anything that inspires you to create – but take it to the next level by learning how to share your creativity with the next generation. An Art Education Certification allows you to be an art major and study to become an art teacher for pre-k through 12th grade. You’ll start by understanding how individuals learn and grow and work toward how to objectively assess their work. Put your skills to the test with a student-teaching internship – and who knows, you may help discover the next Claude Monet.
