The Art Education major will prepare students for visual art teaching careers working in the context of K-12 education. Candidates for the Art Education major will complete the state-approved Visual Art Single Subject Matter Program, which will satisfy the subject-matter competency requirement from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). As a state-approved teacher preparation program, the requirements for the Visual Art Single Subject Matter Program are subject to revision at any time by state or federal law. Art Education majors will be eligible to obtain a California teaching credential, by completing the professional methods courses with fieldwork and student teaching after applying and being admitted to the Preliminary Single Subject credential program under the School of Education.

Students choosing the Art Education major must additionally be admitted into the Credential program for Preliminary Single Subject Credential. Students who do not meet the credential requirements may not be able to complete the major due to accreditation requirements.

Candidates must complete all credential and state requirements to be eligible for a credential. Credential requirements can be obtained from the School of Education credential program advisors.
