Course Catalog


undergraduate dual major students


Once accepted, Art Education students may choose to Dual Major in Crafts or Dual Major in Fine Arts, a program of study that normally takes 5 years and leads to both the B.S. in Art Education and a B.F.A. in Fine Arts or a B.F.A. in Crafts. Fine Arts and Crafts students may apply by submitting an Art Education Portfolio to the Art Education office. Art Education students may submit a Crafts Portfolio to the AE&C office or a Fine Arts Portfolio to the Fine Arts office. See Prospective Students for more information.


Students should be aware that the dual major option requires commitment to both majors and requires a significant level of dedication and focus.

  • Courses: Course requirements can be obtained by downloading the Dual Major: Art Education & Crafts Check Sheet.
  • Benefits: Dual majors graduate with a B.F.A in Crafts and a B.S. in Art Education. The art education degree prepares you to teach in K-12 public school settings. The crafts degree orients you toward becoming a crafts professional and prepares you for graduate study.
  • Admissions: Crafts majors apply by completing an Art Education Portfolio.
  • Eligibility: Crafts majors must have a 3.0 GPA. Majors applying for a semester in which they would have more than 48 credits must have passed with a C or better English Comp, English Lit, Math I, Math II, requirements.
