The Bachelor of Science in Art Education is a professional degree that enables students to teach in Pre-K-12 classrooms and other educational sites. Our nationally and internationally renowned faculty guide students to think differently, create purposefully, and engage meaningfully within communities of learning.
The degree program includes field experiences on and around the Penn State University Park campus and culminates in a semester-long student teaching experience in the Pittsburgh public schools. These experiences afford our students a wide range of educational opportunities with learners from diverse communities.
Students graduating from this degree program are eligible to apply for a Pennsylvania teaching certification license. Employment opportunities also include art museums and galleries, cultural agencies, digital environments, and community art programs.
