The art education emphasis prepares you for K-12 art teacher licensure when paired with Carroll’s secondary education minor. Art education students take a broad array of art courses: drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, jewelry and photography. You’ll also focus in a medium and concept of your choice as a senior, which culminates in an exhibition of your work in Carroll’s gallery before graduation. This combination of broad exposure to many areas of art, specialization in one, as well as education classes through Carroll’s Education Program prepares you to teach K-12 art. Art education candidates spend their last semester off-campus, student-teaching full-time.
Art education students benefit from Carroll’s small size where art and education faculty work closely together to guide students successfully through both programs.
