Course of Study

Our Visual Art Studies degree program leads to a B.F.A. with all-level teacher certification in art, accredited by the Texas State Board for Educator Certification. The program consists of 120 semester credit hours during which you will garner significant experience and skills in art making, art history, and pedagogical practice. You will spend time observing both an elementary and secondary arts classroom, and reflect upon these experiences prior to your final semester, during which you will be a full-time student teacher.

Please note that all courses completed towards your degree requirements must be completed with a grade of C or better. All professional development courses also require a GPA of 2.75 or better.

For certification, you will need to pass the TExES examinations in both Art and Professional Practices. For more information, go to Matthews Hall 105. After passing these exams and the successful completion of your degree, you will need to apply for certification through the state. You can do this online through the Texas Education Agency. For more information on this process, see UNT’s College of Education.

Don’t forget to meet regularly with CVAD advising to make sure that you are on the right path to graduation!
