B.A. in Art and Education with Endorsement in K-12 Education in Art

About the Program

The Art and Education with an Endorsement in K-12 Education in Art program develops students as artists, while preparing them to teach in public and private schools, museums, community art centers, and other settings.

At Monmouth University, students will gain a strong foundation in the history, theory, techniques, and practice of traditional and digital visual arts through a variety of studio and classroom coursework. They will also become conversant with the role of the arts in human development, content in art education, historic and contemporary education theory, and exemplary education practice.

Students have the opportunity to work with children, adolescents, and practicing professionals during field experiences, in addition to completing student teaching, which provides them with practical applications of knowledge they can use in the classroom.

Core Courses

  • Introduction to Digital Design
  • Basic Design and Color
  • Methods of Teaching Art
  • Integrated K-12 Teaching Methods
  • Foundations of Special Education: Development Across the Lifespan

Student Outcomes

Our students have gone on to have successful careers in education with the assistance of Monmouth University’s extensive network of local school and district partnerships. At Monmouth, students are introduced to a variety of teaching environments and work with a diverse group of individuals, and small and large groups of students, making them more marketable upon graduation.
