Overview

The Art Education program of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth will let students take more art courses than they would in a BA program. At UMass Dartmouth, you also have the advantages of a university education where you can diversify your studies and expand your career opportunities. 

As a teacher of art, you will be able to:

  • encourage reflection, compassion, and creativity
  • shape the visual and aesthetic experiences of your students
  • integrate the arts into the community: schools, healthcare facilities, neighborhoods, cities

The Art Education program leads to the Massachusetts initial license to teach in grades PreK-8 or 5-12.

Curriculum

Your curriculum will balance course work in the arts with classes in human development and learning. You will select a studio arts concentration and follow a series of theoretical, practical, and studio-based experiences leading to proficiency in the teaching of art. Your supervised field experiences will culminate in a semester of student teaching.
