Art Education

The Art Education major, associated with the departments of Art and Education, prepares students to teach art in a classroom setting, while also enhancing the students’ personal creative and artistic abilities.

The Art Education major is associated with the Department of Art and the Department of Education. A major requires 10 courses, including but not limited to world art, twentieth century art, 2-D and 3-D design, drawing, a ceramics studio and a painting studio, and principles of art education. In addition, as a capstone experience, departmental majors must present a senior art show.

The Department of Art also offers a Graphic Design concentration in collaboration with the Department of Computing and Information Studies, and uses the W&J Technology Center's state-of-the-art technology.

Students may seek Specialty Education (grades K-12) Certification in Art by completing the Art Education major and an Education minor consisting of those courses required for Specialty Education (grades K-12) Certification.

Additional course information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
