By pursuing a major in Art Education at the University of Central Missouri, you’ll be qualified to teach art to students in grades K-12. You’ll learn how to develop and implement an engaging art curriculum. Our graduates are employed in all of the major school districts within the region.
We believe that art teachers should be artists as well as teachers. The art education program at UCM is designed to develop artistic abilities, understanding of the student, and the requirements of the teaching profession. Art Education students get hands-on experience leading Gallery Kids, a twice-a-semester community outreach in conjunction with the Gallery of Art & Design.
