Art - BFA in Art Education


For over 75 years, the School of Art at Bowling Green State University has nurtured choice, allowing students to express their creative voice in an environment where art is innovative, vibrant, and full of possibilities.

Our 5 divisions include Art Education, Art History, Digital Arts, Graphic Design and Studio.

At the School of Art, students pursuing our BA or BFA degree experience the exclusivity of a private art academy - our faculty to student ratio is 14:1 - yet enjoy the affordability of a state university. And, because we are one of the largest state art schools in Ohio, we are able to offer diverse study abroad opportunities, as well as the facilities and faculty to position students for successful internships and careers with organizations such as Disney Animation, Pixar and the Museum of Modern Art.

Students who intend to become visual arts teachers in PreK-12th grade education settings and/or Community Arts Education establishments enroll in the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Art Education. They acquire strong knowledge and skills through both Studio Arts and Art Education curricula employing a wide range of 2D and 3D as well as digital art and graphic design media and processes. Students gain a conception of art education that integrates art making, art history, visual culture, art criticism, philosophies of art, art education theory, social-justice influences, and community-based artistic engagements.
