A Post Baccalaureate in Art Education offers...

  • Teaching is an opportunity to share your skills and passion and inspire the artists of tomorrow.
  • Taught by award-winning instructors, Moore’s Art Education Post-Baccalaureate program prepares students for a K-12  art teaching certificate through classroom instruction, observational experiences in area schools and guided teaching in Moore’s Young Artists Workshop.
  • This program is geared toward individuals whose college degrees include at least 43.5 studio art credit hours and a 3.0 grade point average. Admitted students may begin the three-semester program in the fall term. Four of the courses are taught in the evening, two on Saturdays. Students are also required to complete 60 days of student teaching.
  • Upon successful completion of coursework, student teaching and Praxis exams, students may apply for Pennsylvania teaching certification accepted by Education Departments in 46 states.


  • Candidates who possess an undergraduate degree in the fine arts can become certified through one of two programs: the MA with certification (Concurrent Program) and the Post-Baccaurleate Certification with MA (Dual Program).
  • The Concurrent Program combines certification and master’s classes into an integrated program. Students in this program immediately begin graduate courses in their first summer term, beginning more quickly to identify and develop a thesis project.
  • The Dual Program is comprised of both traditional post-baccalaureate courses leading to the certification and MA courses. Students begin with post-baccalaureate courses and transition to the standard MA, setting the path to their thesis.
