Teach anyone, anywhere.

Don’t let your artistic talents go to waste — with a degree in art education, you can help K-12 students tap into their creative imaginations as an art educator, or you can practice art education in a public setting, such as a museum or community center. With an art education major at Mercyhurst, you’ll explore contemporary issues, research and practice in the visual arts and in art education. You’ll also gain more than 100 hours of observation before completing required student-teaching hours. This program is designed so that all majors are eligible to sit for the Pennsylvania Department of Education teaching certification upon graduation.
