Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education, B.F.A.

The BFA in Art Education prepares students to obtain provisional New York State Certification as a teacher of art.  The goal of the program is to educate artists so that they will be equipped to teach kindergarten through grade 12. The requirements for both the Art and Education departments must be fulfilled in addition to the Conolly College core curriculum. Student teaching is taken through the Department of Teaching and Learning and supervised by art faculty.
