The art education program at the University of South Carolina will prepare you to teach art and visual culture in various settings that include K-12 classrooms, community art programs and museums.
Each student must have a concentration of at least 9 hours in one studio area at the 200 level or above.
Our proposed curriculum changes reflect most recent changes to the BFA Studio Curriculum. The new BFA Studio curriculum upgrades all 200 level through 500 level courses from 3 credit hours to 4 credit hours. The following Art Education BFA courses will change from 3 to 4 credit hours: ARTS 230, 210, 215, 220, 225 or 555, 232, and 261. We are eliminating three of our ARTS studio electives to make sure that our major requirements do not exceed 51 credit hours.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We have approved the proposal and are moving it forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
