Art Education students are afforded many professional opportunities beyond the classroom.
Students are encouraged to attend and present at local, state, and national conferences for art educators.
Students have access to a state-of-the-art art computer lab for enhancing knowledge and skills in new technologies, which includes studies in visual culture and media literacy.
Each semester in the student’s junior and senior year, he or she will be out, working in an art classroom in area schools for a total of 100 hours leading up to the student teaching semester.
An active AED Student Chapter affiliated with the New York State Art Teachers Association (NYSATA) and the National Art Education Association (NAEA) initiates numerous professional development activities for students to polish leadership skills, to meet and work with seasoned teachers, to develop a sense of esprit de corps with their peers, and to acquire a professional disposition.
The fact that alumni are teaching and working in all 50 states, and many foreign countries attests that the art education curriculum, facilities, and results are truly world class.
