About this Program

Share your passion for art and history with the students of tomorrow.

Program Overview

Today's art & archaeology graduates are not limited to the gallery or the studio: our training can prepare you to teach at the K-12 level and give the next generation an appreciation of art. Throughout our classes, we place particular emphasis on individual attention.

Our program will provide you with tutorials and small studio classes, fostering close interaction with our accomplished faculty. You will receive advanced training in traditional studio media, including design, drawing, painting, photography, ceramics and printmaking, accompanied by essential support courses in both digital media and art history.

Students who successfully complete this concentration will receive certification to teach in Maryland upon graduation, as well as reciprocity for teaching in certain other states.
