Art Education Degree Program

Art is a great teacher — revealing patterns in life, providing a medium of self-discovery, and fostering opportunities to make meaning and envision possibilities.

The teaching of art is also an art form — allowing teacher and learner to co-construct their understanding in visual and embodied ways. Art education is a creative process where the tools of knowledge and experience are used to facilitate opportunities for interaction between teacher, student, curriculum, and world.

Nazareth College is one of the top-ranked schools in New York State for its art education degree program. Our future teachers are taught to present the study and creation of art in exciting and meaningful ways while continuing its lifelong development in their own lives. Our approach to teaching art is not simply to have students follow an assignment or perfect a technique, but to find a reason to make art that is meaningful to them.

As required by NYS, students in our art education major put in 100 field hours of observation and teaching in practicums and student teaching in local schools and in our on-campus Saturday Art School. Our graduates teach in school systems locally and around the country. All are gifted artists and teachers who use their own talents to inspire others.

Program Highlights

  • The NYS Initial Certification program (Pre-K through grade 12) prepares artists to become teachers through fieldwork in surrounding area school districts.
  • Choose from a variety of study abroad options including Rennes, France and Pescara, Italy.
  • High placement rate; many regional art teachers are Nazareth grads.

Which school is better for an Art Education degree, CSUN or CSULA? | Yahoo Answers

I would choose Northridge because of its better location and higher academic standards.

Do you need a degree in education to teach fine arts in high school? | Yahoo Answers

Your MFA degree will be the only degree you'll need. BUT, you will need a few "required" courses in education (not a degree) in order to be certified by the state in order to teach in a public high school.
