Requirements for studio art with K-12 Art Education Certification, specialization in graphic design

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. 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 course grade may be below a (C) 2.0. Since admission to this program is highly competitive, not all of those who achieve these minimal GPA standards will be admitted. Students interested in the K-12 art education certification should consult often with the art and art history department’s adviser. A maximum of 16 transfer credits may be used toward the major, in addition to the required 12 corequisite credits. Students in this program must complete the requirements for a B.A. degree in the College of Arts and Sciences and concurrently fulfill the requirements listed below:

5. Corequisite studio art (3D) courses - 9 credits

Studio art education candidates must also take the following courses at Oakland University, Macomb Community College or Oakland Community College (or equivalent):

  • ceramics/pottery
  • wheel-thrown ceramics/pottery
  • jewelry/metalworking
