The Arts Major: Studio Art/Art Education Option B.A.
What is studio art/art education?
If you’re interested in teaching art, our degree with the option in studio art/art education will prepare you for a career as an art educator in public schools. In the first four years, you’ll immerse yourself in the studio art program, earning a bachelor’s degree while gaining broad experience working with diverse media. You’ll have the opportunity to study art forms such as drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture and woodcraft. A fifth-year internship satisfies the initial certification requirements for teachers of art in public schools in New Hampshire and most other states.
