Art: Art Education (K-12), B.A.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Virtually every great artist credits his or her artistic development to the encouragement of engaged teachers, tutors and mentors. Young creative talent is delicate, so when talented artists are called to teach, they transform classrooms into nurturing environments where new generations are inspired to express themselves freely and joyously.

In preparation, the art education program develops not only your artistic understanding and capabilities, but also your skills in lesson planning, classroom instruction and assessment.

Like art itself, art education is a hands-on on program. Your studio work will include painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking and photography instruction as well as courses in art history. You’ll work with experienced, award-winning teachers - both on faculty and in the field - as professors and mentors. As you approach your student teaching semester, you will have completed more than one hundred real-world hours in public school classrooms.

Those are high achievements and valuable lessons. It’s no wonder that 100% of our students receive employment offers upon graduation.

Successful completion of the Art Education concentration leads to South Carolina Department of Education PK-12 licensure.
