The K-12 Art Licensure Program is an intensive, classroom-based program (34 credits) offered only in Fairbanks and Anchorage. The program prepares post-baccalaureate candidates for K-12 teaching positions. It is specifically designed to prepare candidates to teach in multicultural settings in Alaska. The content will specifically identify and discuss current issues of art education and applying Alaska Content/ Performance Standards and Frameworks as well as National Standards for Art Education.
Candidates may apply as licensure only candidates (all courses work completed at the 400-level) or as graduate licensure candidates. Candidates who apply as graduate applicants may simultaneously pursue teacher licensure and the M.Ed. Secondary Education degree. Significant additional course work will be required. (See requirements for M.Ed. Secondary) Graduate level candidates complete some course work at the graduate (600) level and the remainder at the undergraduate (400) level. Course work at the 600 level is more intense and of greater volume than at the 400 level. The 400 and 600 levels of the same course meet at the same time.
Admission to the graduate level K-12 Art post-baccalaureate licensure program toward M.Ed. in Secondary Education includes meeting requirements of the UAF Graduate School and of the School of Education. Candidates who do NOT gain acceptance into the Graduate School may apply to the licensure only option.
At the successful conclusion of the program candidates are eligible for an Alaska initial teaching license. Graduate level candidates will have successfully completed 15 credits towards a master’s degree in secondary education.
