Art Education B.S.

Students who plan to teach Art in grades K-12 or 9-12 in Missouri complete this sequence of courses and the Secondary Certification sequence (39 hours). Students seeking K-12 certification must take Teaching Art in the Elementary School (EDU 282).

Students interested in becoming certified to teach in other states need to follow these program requirements and be recommended for Missouri certification by the Registrar. They may then take that certification to other states. Policies vary among states.

Information on the curriculum, policies and requirements of the university’s Teacher Education Program and of its teacher certification process is available in the Teacher Education Program handbook. The handbook is posted on the Education program’s website.

Introduction to Teacher Education (EDU 105) is recommended for students in this certification.
