The Bachelor of Science in Education degree, art specialization program, addresses Missouri State requirements to teach art kindergarten through 12th grade. Students in this program take 36 hours of studio art and art history as well as education and University Studies courses. Practicum courses and student teaching provide the experiential learning necessary to begin the teaching career.
Southeast’s education program differs from that of many other universities by providing you with extensive field experience, beginning with first-hand classroom training and observation during your freshman year and continuing through student teaching during your senior year.
As a student in Southeast’s education program, you will receive a full semester of on-the-job student teaching experience, as opposed to the traditional eight or nine weeks of training, and you will have the opportunity to personally experience another culture’s educational system through international student teaching programs.
Southeast’s education program’s unique block format, in addition to providing increased professional experience, allows you to meet other students with your major early on, thus enabling you to form common bonds and establish professional relationships with others in your field.
