Bachelor of Fine Arts - K-12 Visual Art Education (BFA)
Eastern Michigan University has a great reputation, primarily because we have been teaching art educators methods in teaching since 1895. Our program is successful because art teacher candidates transition through four areas of study (general education, art studio, art pedagogy, and general education pedagogy) which culminate in the student teaching experience. Graduates of our program earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts K-12 Visual Art Education degree which qualifies them for PK-12 visual arts certification in the state of Michigan; a certification accepted in 46 states across America. Those who receive teacher certification go on to teach art in the elementary, middle, or high school setting. EMU graduates are also qualified to pursue work at an art museum, in arts administration, or continue with advanced study in art education, art therapy, museum education, and studio art.
