Student Teaching

Art Education
All students in the MAT in Visual Arts graduate program are required to participate in two intensive, seven-week student teaching field experiences (one elementary-level and one secondary-level), under the guidance and supervision of a highly qualified art teacher/mentor. It is intended to provide practical experience in which the interns assume professional-level responsibilities and experiences in teaching art. A University supervisor observes, advises and facilitates the relationship between the mentors and interns, and assesses the students during the internships.
