Teaching Artist Minor

Teaching artistry is a growing field of practice in arts education across the country. For years, artists have practiced their art while contributing to the field of education in a multitude of ways. The Teaching Artist minor provides scaffolding for students who are interested in using their majors to further develop their craft while teaching and working with children, adolescents, and adults. The Teaching Artist minor provides students the opportunity to build the necessary skills to partner effectively with organizations that employ teaching artists. The Teaching Artist minor prepares students to work in a variety of settings that do not require a teaching license. These include after-school programs, community-based arts organizations, museum settings, and in-school programs supervised by a licensed teacher. All students in this minor complete a three credit-hour Teaching Artist practicum or internship in which they connect their major with their minor coursework. Additionally, Teaching Artist minors’ transcripts provide evidence of a strong background in teaching artistry, if they choose to continue their education through graduate studies.
