University Park, College of Arts and Architecture (A ED)

PROFESSOR CHARLES GAROIAN, Director, School of Visual Arts

This major offers two options: Art Education for Schools, and Art Education for Museums and Cultural Institutions. The purpose of the program is to prepare knowledgeable, skilled, and caring professional educators to become critical, reflective practitioners, researchers and artists, and agents of change for social justice in diverse contexts of educational practice; generate and disseminate knowledge that leads to new pedagogical understandings on which more effective policies and practices can be grounded; and collaborate across disciplines, professions, and constituencies to promote social change that leads to educational improvement and transformation. An integral part of each option involves 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 Museums and Cultural Institutions, a minimum of 120 credits is required; with an option in Art Education for Schools, a minimum of 132 credits is required.
