Undergraduate students may declare their intention to be an Art Education major on their application to the University or by the beginning of sophomore year (if intending to graduate in 8 semesters). To change majors to become an Art Education major, students must first apply on line to become a member of the College of Education and Social Services, and then declare the Art Education major.
All Students who wish to be an Art Education major are accepted, though students must have a 3.0 GPA (or ability to get a 3.0 by graduation). Juniors and seniors must have a minimum of a 3.0 in each professional art education course, including student teaching.
Accepted students should check their advisor information and CATS report online on the registrar’s homepage. A meeting with your Art Education advisor is mandatory in order to plan a time-sensitive program of course requirements. The CATS report must be referred to in order to track your progress in meeting the Art Education Program requirements. You are ultimately responsible for your progress in the requirements for graduation and certification.
