    The Bachelor of Arts in Education degree is offered for students wishing to pursue a career in elementary or secondary art education. Students may choose an area of emphasis or course of study appropriate to their selected grade level. For secondary majors, a minor in another discipline is not required, but a supporting endorsement in another field is strongly recommended. The completion of either the elementary or secondary majors leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Education include the art endorsement as required by the Office of the Superintendent for Public Instruction for certification. It is imperative that students majoring in this area seek additional advising from the certification and professional admissions offices in the Department of Education. Prior to admission to the professional education courses and student teaching placement, students must complete ART391, "Foundations of Art Education" and the appropriate methods course (ART390, "Art in the Elementary Schools" or ART393, "Art in the Secondary Schools").
