Bachelor of Fine ArtsIn-depth experience in a particular art discipline combined with a solid grounding in pedagogical methods prepares student artists to excel as teachers.
The studio education program encourages students to develop expertise in a particular studio area, ranging from communication and environmental design to two- and three-dimensional fine arts. The program focuses on depth rather than breadth, helping students deepen their understanding and appreciation of a chosen art form.
Instead of the electives required in the art teacher education program, students in the studio education program are responsible for completing six credits each semester in their studio major.
Upon graduation, students are eligible for initial licensure. Post-graduate professional development typically includes coursework in other art forms or obtaining a master's degree.
