Are you passionate about the arts and their many benefits to individuals and societies? Do you have a desire to unlock students' creative potential? If so, consider a degree in art education.
PLNU is one of a select number of universities in California that has an art education program accredited by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC). The Bachelor of Arts in Art Education program will prepare you to enter a credentialed program to teach visual arts in K-12 classrooms. Whether you decide to pursue your credential in the PLNU School of Education or finish your licensing elsewhere, the uncompromising foundational education you’ll receive in this warm, close-knit community will ensure you’re ready to take the next step to teach art.
You will learn firsthand how to become a secondary art teacher from PLNU’s committed art professors, while drawing on your strengths and insights as an emerging artist. Our small class sizes and proximity to local museums and galleries will make your education both collaborative and experiential. Finally, the learning will continue with student teaching experiences in charter and traditional classrooms through our school partnerships with at-risk students.
