Return to Academic Programs (alphabetic) Return to: Academic Programs (alphabetic)

The Department of Art and Art History offers a program of Art and Education courses to prepare students for K-12 Art Education licensure in North Carolina.  Students should contact the Arts Education Specialist as soon as possible for advising.  A decision later than freshman year to seek licensure may result in a delayed graduation date.  Forms for the degree requirements and licensure requirements are available in the department office or on the Department of Art and Art History website

Additional Admission Requirements


Students interested in pursuing the B.F.A. in Art with a concentration in Art Education must submit an entrance Portfolio the Spring semester before their anticipated start date in Fall.  The Portfolio consists of original works of art created by the student.  Specific guidelines about presentation, selection, and submission can be found online at art.uncc.edu.  Once a student passes their entrance Portfolio, they begin coursework in the B.A. in Art.  A second Portfolio is required during the sophomore year to transition into the B.F.A. and the Application to Teacher Education is submitted to the College of Education.  After successfully completing both requirements, the concentration in Art Education is added and the student progresses with upper-level coursework.
