About the Program
Welcome to the University of Florida Art Education Department in the School of Art + Art History. We offer several accredited program options for students who are interested in pursuing a career in teaching art or who are looking to pursue advanced studies in the field of Art Education.
The undergraduate Art Education program at UF is designed for students who plan to teach art in public schools. Students completing this Bachelor of Arts program, which includes coursework in studio art, art history, professional education, and general education, are eligible for certification as K-12 Art Teachers in Florida and all other NCATE states.
Graduate students in the Art Education program can complete either the
campus-based or online Master of Arts in Art Education.
In both programs, students have the option to complete the Educator Preparation Institute track.
The EPI track allows students to earn a Master’s degree and K-12 Florida Art Teacher Certification through a state-approved Educator Preparation Institute
Online Masters of Arts in Art Education
The online Master of Arts in Art Education offers instruction and learning opportunities with the convenience and flexibility of online delivery – so students can continue to work while going to school. We invite you to learn more about the Online Master’s in Art Education.
