Art Education K-12 Certification

Art Education

The graduate certification program in Art Education (K-12) is a 30 credit program that offers a unique opportunity for students to advance their development as artists while sharing their love of art with young people.

The primary mission for this program is to prepare art teachers for public and private school service who possess knowledge and skills in the arts, advanced theoretical and practical knowledge in art education, and understanding of the roles of education within wider contexts of culture and society.

 
The demand for quality education professionals is on the rise. Building upon our existing expertise in this sector, Saint Joseph's University has created a  School of Health Studies and Education , which will officially open in the Fall of 2019. Over 40 existing undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and certificate programs, including this one, will be housed in this school.
