  • Course description
    Students who wish to teach art at the preK-12 level should plan to major in Art and Archaeology with an Art Education Concentration. Students in this concentration receive a strong training in traditional studio media, including design, drawing, painting, photography, ceramics and printmaking, as well as courses in digital media and art history. Students who successfully complete this concentration will receive certification to teach in Maryland upon graduation, as well as reciprocity for teaching in certain other states.

    The Art Education concentration provides for the development of broad-based knowledge and skills in the studio arts insuring that students will be thoroughly prepared to teach courses in design, drawing and painting, and their choice of two additional media, painting, photography, ceramics or printmaking. The required course in photography and digital arts will introduce students to the uses of technology in the arts. Three courses in art history and an upper-level course in art history or archaeology will provide students with a solid grounding in the history and cultural contexts of the visual arts. An internship (i.e., a student teaching semester) will culminate teacher preparation.
