“Millersville University’s art education program and its professors provided my peers and I with a structured learning environment that demanded excellence. They believed in my potential even when I did not. They guided me through my journey as a student and helped me become the educator I am today. Even now, they continue to support me as colleague in the field of art and art education. The relationships I have built at MU are ties that cannot be broken.”- Keisha McCauley | 2013
What Will You Learn?
To gain a broad background, art education students must take courses in a variety of student areas and studio courses. You will complete four art foundation courses in drawing and two- and three-dimensional design, as well as four art history courses. Studio experiences are blended with education coursework to ensure that you are well prepared to enter the professional world upon graduation. Education courses are offered within the art department and within Millersville's College of Education and Human Services.
Gain additional studio art preparation and enhance your confidence in the classroom by double majoring to receive B.F.A. and B.S.E. degrees.
