This major offers two options: Art Education for Schools, and Art Education for Cultural and Social Agencies. An integral part of each option for students is a basic art studio, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics preparation, a variety of observational and participatory experiences in art learning environments, and an extensive pre-practice internship. Upon completion of the option, employment prospects and/or acceptance for advanced graduate studies depends upon individual achievement and qualifications. (See also Teacher Education Programs.)

For the B.S. degree in Art Education with an option in Art Education for Cultural and Social Agencies, a minimum of 131 credits is required; with an option in Art Education for Schools, a minimum of 140 credits is required.
