Minor in Beacon Art Education (K-12) Certification

Earn a minor certification in art education through our Beacon program while completing your bachelor’s degree.

This minor equips art students to plan lessons, teach, and assess children in kindergarten to grade 12. It’s part of our Beacon program for students who wish to complete a bachelor’s degree in a content area along with a minor in a teacher certification area.

Students explore drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture and more, building their understanding of art as a means to critically engage with one’s surroundings. They create their own works, experimenting with different techniques and mediums.

The professional education requirements prepare students for effective teaching, with courses from educational philosophy to classroom management to child and adolescent development.
