Visual Art PreK-12 Licensure

The Post Baccalaureate Program is designed for people who already hold a bachelors degree, preferably in Fine Arts, who wish to become certified K-12 art teachers.

A student who wishes to be admitted into the post baccalaureate program in Art Education is required to meet the screening criteria and procedures of the College of Fine Arts and Art Education. Screening is done concurrently with the program's prerequisites screening course, Art Education 310, and in some cases Art Education 320.

Upon admission into the teacher preparation program in art, the student meets with a CFA academic adviser with whom the student must be in contact on a regular basis. The Progress Sheet is to be drawn up as early as possible after acceptance into the program. The student is required to meet with his or her adviser each semester throughout the program.

The student teaching component of the program entails a substantial time investment outside of the University environment. Therefore, many students require four semesters to complete the program, although some are able to complete it in three.
