(Philadelphia, PA) Brad Rosenau, a student in Moore’s MA in Art Education program, is the 2010 recipient of the Outstanding Teaching Award from the Pennylvania State College of Education Alumni.

He was presented with the award at the College’s Alumni Society Awards Banquet on October 16, 2010.

Rosenau, of Souderton, Pa, graduated from Penn State with a bachelor’s of science and a master’s degree in vocational industrial education in 1985. He is an Adobe certified associate educator in visual communication using Photoshop and is also pursuing a master’s in Art Education with an emphasis in special populations at Moore.

Moore College of Art & Design is the only school in the country to offer this major and Rosenau is the first male graduate student to be enrolled at the nation's first and only women's art college. Co-ed graduate programs were launched in summer of 2009 and include an MA in Studio Art and an MFA in Interior Design.

Rosenau currently teaches commercial art and design at Middle Bucks Institute of Technology in Jamison, Pa. In his teaching, he often identifies community service opportunities and uses them to develop service-learning experiences for his students.

"Brad brings the award-winning qualities he uses in teaching his high school students into the graduate classroom at Moore," said Lynne Horoschak, program manager for master's in Art Education. "We are honored and delighted to have a person of his caliber in our program."
