Teaching Art

Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky, offers a teaching art degree that combines required courses from studio art, art history, and education and leads to P–12 certification. As with the other art majors, students choosing a teaching art major can expect a multidisciplinary curriculum that fulfills the diverse goals of a liberal arts program.

Teachers successfully completing this program demonstrate skills in a variety of artistic mediums and develop a thorough understanding of historical context. Graduates must also have demonstrated the pedagogical, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking skills they will need to be successful in the classroom.
