Visual Arts K–12 Major, Bachelor of Arts in Education (BAE)
This major satisfies the endorsement for preschool to grade 12.
Students who successfully complete the coursework and other requirements for this BAE degree will be eligible for Washington state teacher certification and are eligible to be employed in the public school system as an art teacher. Teaching art is a highly rewarding career choice with a variety of employment possibilities - not only are art teachers needed in public schools - but they are also employed in museums, community centers, and/or in corporate training venues, etc. Of note, Eastern Washington University’s outstanding art education program strives to produce effective teachers who are working artists.
All BAE/Art Education students will work closely with BOTH an Art Department advisor and Education Department advisor.
Note: the requirements for students who signed their major in either 2017/18 or 2018/19 should refer to the Catalog Archives for the appropriate catalog year. Courses no longer offered by EWU can be replaced with equivalent courses if authorized by an ART advisor.
Note: The Art Department recommends all art majors and minors begin their studies with Foundation Requirements courses. Prerequisites may be required for course entry.

Use the Catalog Archives to determine two important catalog years.
SOAR calculates based on these two catalog years.

- The catalog in effect at the time the student declares a major or minor is used to determine the program requirements.
