Art Education (K-12)
Bachelor of Arts in Art Education
The Art Education degree is for the creative art student seeking certification to teach art in elementary, junior high, or high school grades. Evangel University’s program meets the Missouri state requirements for certification in Art Education, grades K-12. The degree program requires course work in both Art and Education, as well as a minor in a related field.
The Art Education degree program is designed to give the student a broad experience in multiple disciplines of art-making. This ranges from painting and drawing to sculpture and ceramics. The Art faculty provides foundational study in Art History through three survey courses.
Art Education students also take required courses in Education, including early practicum experiences in the classroom and their professional semester of student teaching. From the start, Art Education students build their portfolio of work and experiences in both Education and in studio practice, making the Art Education graduate competitive and an attractive hire for schools around the nation.
