You’ll also develop your skills as a teacher. In each of your four art education courses on this Art Education program, you’ll be paired with an art teacher to observe and teach alongside him or her for 10 hours. You’ll design and teach an art curriculum to your peers in art education classes, using the latest technologies in a classroom stocked full of every art material imaginable.

And you’ll use art to improve the world: developing your skills as a caretaker for children and receiving valuable training from Alliance for Children in how to recognize and prevent child abuse. You’ll work with dozens of children from various socioeconomic and developmental backgrounds, including children experiencing disabilities.

Career Prospects

Regardless of your professional direction, you’ll work closely with an advisor as you begin your senior year to prepare for your job search. This is partly due to the fact that you are mentored for professional work beginning the first semester of your freshman year.

Our Art Education Horned Frogs are pre-K-12 art teachers that you can observe during your art education courses, museum educators that you can contact and visit, business owners and art therapists who are willing mentors. Members of the Texas Christian University network stand ready to answer questions and guide you on your professional path.
