Transylvania offers a teaching art major 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 to major in teaching art 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.
