The Bachelor of Science in Art Education leads to teacher certification in grades Pre-kindergarten through 12. This program is based on the Discipline-Based Art Education model with a curriculum that includes study in studio, art history, aesthetics and art criticism.The art education program is aligned with the National Standards in Visual Arts, the Quality Core Curriculum of Georgia, and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. The program provides students with a broad foundation in general education, extensive study in art, and professional education and field experiences.

This single field program is designed to prepare art teachers at all grade levels (Pre-kindergarten through grade 12). It leads to P-12 teacher certification in the teaching field of art in Georgia. Candidates complete the equivalent of a major in art and a second major in pedagogical studies with an emphasis on teaching art. Based on the Discipline Based Model of Art Education, the curriculum in the teaching field includes study in studio, art history, aesthetics and art criticism.

All art and art education majors are required to take art and art history foundation course work in lower division major requirements before taking upper division art or art education courses. ART 3000, the Professional Practices Seminar & Portfolio Review course, is required of all art and art education majors during the semester of completion of lower division major requirements or before the completion of six hours of upper level art or art education courses. All transfer students with transfer credit in lower division major requirements must take Art 3000 the first semester enrolled in upper level art or art education courses.

Each program of study is a sequentially-based curriculum beginning the first semester of the freshman year. Students who delay entering the major until completion of the General Education Core Curriculum may prolong their academic careers.
