B.A. DEGREE IN ART EDUCATION (OPTION: TEACHER CERTIFICATION)

The B.A. Degree in Art Education is an intensive program that prepares students for careers as professional educators and leads to New Jersey Certification in the Teaching of Art, grades K-12. The program’s philosophical approach is rooted in current research which identifies psychology as a critical substructure of the artistic process. The integration of sensory, emotional, kinesthetic, and cognitive processes and its implications to the development of global intelligence through artistic learning are emphasized. The program’s intellectually rigorous course of study prepares future educators to engage in conceptual thought about learning in the visual arts and translate these understandings into a grounded, vivified and highly effective classroom practice. The Art Education Program seeks only serious, responsible and academically strong students. The program is writing and reading intensive and also demands a clearly developing practice in the studio arts. To ensure retention in the program, accepted students are required not only maintain a high level of academic achievement but also to exhibit professional performance by maturely and responsibly meeting all deadlines and expectations in courses and fieldwork.


Program Admission Interview:
Program admission is competitive. Admission to Kean University does not indicate admission into the Art Education Program. All prospective students must contact the program coordinator for an interview as soon as possible during freshman year and no later than fall of sophomore year.
Applicants must demonstrate the following:

  1. A grade report showing a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above.
  2. Clearly developing studio work or an early portfolio
  3. A proficient academic writing sample
  4. Capability in dialogic/communication skills
  5. Recommendations from faculty members (may also be required)

*Note: The Praxis I test is also required prior to official admission into the program. It may be taken after the interview, during freshman or early sophomore year.


Important Notes:

  1. Students must earn a B- or above in COMM 1402, ENG 1030, and take the Praxis I (see above). The Speech Examination must also be taken.
  2. FA 2900 must be taken in sophomore year before all other art education courses and requires special permission.
  3. Students should begin taking core studio courses (such as Drawing I, Drawing II and/or 2D Design) alongside general education courses during freshman year in order to cultivate the necessary skills needed for junior year fieldwork.
  4. It is extremely important that, when students anticipate beginning fieldwork, they strictly observe application deadlines set by the Teaching Performance Center. These deadlines are set nearly a year prior to actual fieldwork (Feb 1 for placements in the following fall and April 15 for placements in the following spring).
  5. The Praxis II test must be taken in junior year and scores submitted to the University before FA4990 (Student Teaching) in senior year.
  6. Capstone EDUC4000 must be taken with FA4990 (Student Teaching).
  7. All incoming students should obtain the Art Education Program Guide Sheet from the Fine Arts Department to view the most current listing of course and program requirements.

B.F.A. DEGREE STUDIO ART

The B.F.A. degree requires 81 hours in the major and offers intensive professional programs which require specialization from among the particular options listed below. General Education requirements are the same for all B.F.A. options.
This B.F.A. degree program prepares graduates to be professional artists. It provides for in-depth specialization in a selected studio area and is based upon the breadth of knowledge provided through a liberal arts background combined with a studio arts foundation.
This program of study emphasizes personal growth in the critical, creative, technical and professional aspects of the studio arts. It can also serve as preparation for graduate study and for related careers such as the teaching of art on the post-secondary level.
Students must present a portfolio prior to being accepted into the B.F.A. Studio Art program.
Students who are accepted into this degree program at the time of the portfolio review are given “provisional” status. Provisional B.F.A. majors must maintain a 3.0 GPA in Fine Arts and Art History courses.
After completion of at least 30 s.h. in Fine Arts and Art History courses, all provisional B.F.A. majors must successfully complete a second portfolio review process in order to attain “fully admitted” status. Any student having completed 30 s.h. in Fine Arts and Art History courses with a 3.0 GPA is eligible to submit to the portfolio review process. Students not accepted may reapply at a later date.
B.F.A. students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in Fine Arts and Art History to be eligible for the degree.
B.F.A. students are required to exhibit a body of work in conjunction with the Mentor Sequence.
