Studio Art with K-12 Art Education Certification

The Art Education Program at Oakland University is an extended program of study leading to K-12 certification in art. This program is offered in conjunction with the Secondary Teacher Education Program (STEP) in the School of Education and Human Services (SEHS). Generally, eligibility for admission to the program requires a GPA of 3.00 in the major and an overall GPA of 2.80. No single major course grade may be below 2.0. Since admission to this program is highly competitive, not all of those who achieve these minimal GPA standards will be admitted.

A maximum of 16 transfer credits may be used toward the major, in addition to the required 12 corequisite credits.
