The BFA program in art education K-12 is for students who wish to receive licensure to teach art in Minnesota; it is offered in cooperation with the College of Education and Human Service Professions (CEHSP). The program prepares art teachers for kindergarten through the twelfth grade and provides a foundation in a variety of studio areas, art history, and art education methods. To qualify for this program, pre-art education students must pass a portfolio review (ART 0903). In addition to completing liberal education and art courses, each student must gain admission to the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) licensure program during the junior year to complete the education courses required by the State Department of Education and Board of Teaching. Students entering the secondary and K-12 licensure programs are bound by the policies in effect at the time of application to the licensure program. Admission is based on criteria established by the Department of Education that are consistent with Minnesota policies, as well as standards established by the National Council for Accreditation in Teacher Education. A student must have: 1) completed EDUC 1101; 2) a GPA of at least 2.50 overall and in major courses completed at the time of application; 3) taken the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Exam (MTLE) or have passing scores on the ACT Plus Writing or SAT exam; 4) minimum 30 documented hours working with students in grades 5 - 12; 5) minimum of 1 letter of recommendation; 6) receive a C- or better in all required courses for the major. Students must submit a letter of application, resume, letters of recommendation, and a copy of their Academic Progress Audit System (APAS) report. There are alternatives to these established admission procedures to encourage the participation of individuals from underrepresented groups and other students as determined by the department. Field experiences are an important part of the art education program and includes observations and participation in community, museum and elementary school programs; two apprenticeships in area public and/or private middle schools and high schools concluding with a full semester of supervised student teaching (8 weeks at the elementary and 8 weeks at the middle or high school level). Students produce a body of work for the Senior Exhibition under the mentorship of faculty in their area.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
Freshman and transfer students are usually admitted to pre-major status before admission to this major.
Students must have completed at least 9 credits of art core pre-art education requirement courses during the first semester at UMD. The portfolio reviews occur twice a year during the 5th week of the semester. A mandatory information meeting takes place two weeks prior to the review. After successful completion of the art education portfolio review, students become art education majors. The teacher licensure requirements are determined by the MN Board of Teaching. These requirements are subject to change without notice and may lead to course modifications in UMD's teaching programs. Changes in program requirements may be applied to current students. Department advisers work closely with students to assist them in meeting the state's standards in a timely manner. Evidence of having taken the state-mandated tests of basic skills. Evidence of passing scores on a nationally recognized standardized test such as MTLE, ACT, or SAT.
