What is Art Education at WVU like?
Mix your knowledge of art, art history, methods and materials with another's energy and interests. Help others foster their imagination and embrace their talents and allow them to explore themselves and the world around them through art.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts in art education with teacher certification is a nationally accredited, professional track degree that takes four-and-a-half years to complete. You will complete a studio concentration, as well as certification to teach art in pre-K through grade 12. Our graduates are well-rounded artist/teachers with a high job placement rate.
Supported by experiences in the studio arts, art history and education, you will engage in various types of teaching and related activities while still having the full studio art-making experience in a concentration of your choice. You'll observe teachers in the public schools, work with them on special projects and conclude with a semester practice teaching with carefully selected elementary and secondary school teachers.
All interested students must apply to the University and submit a portfolio for the School of Art and Design for acceptance.
