We offer the Bachelor of Science in Art Education, an accredited program leading to Pennsylvania Certification in Art, K-12. Newly- expanded offerings in the Community Arts have developed courses with outreach to the Philadelphia community. Graduates from our Art programs have gone on to graduate study, field work in art galleries, studios, and a wide variety of art-related occupations. We have a 92% placement rate for Art Education in K-12 schools and also in community sites.

The Art Education program ensures a fully-rounded preparation for the elementary and secondary school teacher. This program provides content study for art teacher preparation and teacher certification to teach art in kindergarten through twelfth grade.  The requirements for the degree are 128 total credits. 42 credits are in studio art, 9 credits in Art History, 20 credits in Art Education, 18 credits in Education, and 35 to 45 credits in General Education or University Core Curriculum or required liberal arts courses. A 3.0 minimum cumulative GPA is required for registration in all Art Education courses. The department will accept a maximum of 24 semester hours of transfer studio credits toward the major. The Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education may be conferred upon a student by recommendation of the faculty and upon the satisfactory completion of a minimum of 128 semester hours of credit with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.

While a portfolio is not required for admission into the B.S. in Art Education degree program, if you have completed college-level studio courses and are seeking studio equivalency credit, you must complete a transfer portfolio review. The department will only accept up to 24 transfer credits of studio work toward the major. The transfer portfolio consists of seven to ten images of work for each studio art course you have completed along with a list of the size of the medium and the title of the course. Students must upload a portfolio to www.temple.slideroom.com or submit a CD-ROM. CDs will be discarded after the review. Do not send original art work or slides as these are not accepted and will not be reviewed. If sending a CD, clearly mark your name and telephone number along with "BA or BS transfer portfolio" on the front of the CD. These materials are to be sent to the Art and Art Education Office, Room 210J. Tyler School of Art, Temple University, 2001 North 13th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122.
