Course Catalog


post-baccalaureate certification in
art education

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program in Art Education provided for students with an undergraduate B.F.A. degree in Visual Arts who have an interest in teaching art in K-12 settings. The program culminates in a Pennsylvania Department of Education Level I certificate. Students in art education have gone on to teach in public schools, private schools, museums, and community settings.  Admission into this program is during the fall semester only.

Admissions: Students in this program apply though Graduate Admissions.

Program of Study: Students can look at the Post-Baccalaureate Course Check Sheet to get an initial sense of the course they would need to complete the program. To be eligible for the program students must have a 3.0 average in a BFA degree in the Visual Arts or equivalent. Fall admissions only, August 1st is the application deadline.

Special opportunities: The Art Education programs provide students with clinical experiences in K-12 teaching in Elementary, Middle, and High School and Rural, Suburban, and Urban settings. The program offers Museum Education opportunities through museums in the region.

Grad-Plus-Cert: Certification students can work toward an M.Ed. in Art Education as they work through the certification process. Although each program of study is unique, the Grad-Plus-Cert Check Sheet is useful for considering this option.

Equipment and Facilities: Art education field experiences take place in a wide range of regional schools and museums. The region provides a wide variety of school settings for students to obtain a rich array of experiences related to K-12 teaching.

Faculty: The Art Education Program has a faculty who are dedicated to their students and their areas of research in studio art, art education, art history and criticism. In addition, art teachers from the region contribute to the success of our program through their generous mentoring of Kutztown University students through their roles as co-operative teachers.
