Major Details

Art B.S.

Art Majors may choose from one of three concentrations:

  • Art Education Concentration

    Students who plan to teach Art in grades K-12 in Missouri complete this sequence of courses and the Secondary Certification sequence (45 hours).

    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.

  • Photography Concentration

  • Studio Art Concentration

Majors are required to complete a portfolio review each year. Successful completion of the sophomore review constitutes entry into the major.
