Teaching Artist Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Education

The Teaching Artist (TA) Field 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 arts education in a multitude of ways. The Teaching Artist minor would provide scaffolding for students who are interested in using their majors to further develop their craft, while teaching and working with children and adolescents. The TA minor will provide students the opportunity to build the necessary skills to partner effectively with organizations that employ teaching artists. Students who earn a Teaching Artist minor would be prepared to work in various school art programs that do not require a teaching certificate, after school programs, community-based arts programs, museum settings, or a range of positions that require knowledge of working with children. TA minors would also have a stronger transcript when applying to graduate programs in Education, Counseling/Art Therapy, or Social Work. All students in the minor would complete a TA practicum in their major area of study or a1-2 credit internship through the early childhood program.
