Program Mission

The mission of the Art Education program is to develop students’ abilities, not only to create art, but also to pass along their passion and interest to others. Through a broad curriculum including studios, seminars, in-classroom experiences, and real-world training, students are prepared to pass licensure examinations and to pursue classroom teaching, their own artistic practice, and graduate school.

Degree Objectives

Coursework serves to develop students’ aesthetic, conceptual, and technical abilities while exploring the creative aspect of the human spirit.
