The Art Education Program at the School of Art and Design (SoAD) at Southern Illinois University Carbondale is a vibrant and active educational opportunity for students.
The Art Education Program serves an undergraduate enrollment of approximately 40 students who are enrolled either in the School of Art and Design or the College of Education and Human Services. Admissions sends students first to CoEHS (BSc) and from there students can transfer to SoAD (BFA). The course work includes elementary and secondary methods, theories and philosophies of art education, curriculum and assessment in art education, and an introduction to the profession. As a component of the Introduction to Art Education course, the art education students teach in the Saturday Young Artists Workshop series each semester.
