The Art Education program at Huntington University prepares students to become an art teacher of exceptional skill, unique creative thought, and deep Christian faith.
Art education students study drawing, painting and design as well as courses in art history and criticism that help students gain skills in discerning art styles and periods, understanding the historical role of art in religion and culture, and appreciating the heritage of the visual arts in Christian worship.
Students then complete advanced studios in preparation for a senior exhibit and portfolio.
The Bachelor of Science degree in art education is specifically designed for students who wish to obtain a teaching license. Indiana licensing endorsements will be received for all-grade (K-12) levels. Reciprocity agreements between Indiana and other states help graduates find employment across the country.
In addition, Huntington University has an active student chapter of the National Art Education Association. This group strives to develop further expertise in art teaching practices through state conferences and by networking with art educators in the field.
