K-12 Art Licensure Program

Offered only in Fairbanks and Anchorage, this is an intensive, classroom-based K-12 art licensure program (34 credits) that prepares postbaccalaureate candidates for K-12 teaching positions. The program 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.

At the end of the program, if students have successfully met all of the program requirements, they will be eligible to apply for an Alaska initial teaching license and will receive certificates of completion from UAF.

Candidates who enter the K-12 art licensure program are required to have use of/own a laptop computer before they begin their internship in the fall semester of their professional year.

Admission Process and Requirements

Applicants will follow the admission process and requirements listed in the catalog for the Secondary Postbaccalaureate Licensure Program, with the exception that applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in art from an accredited university or college. Applicants should be aware that additional content course work may be required, depending on content of degree. Additional course work, as determined by the appropriate departments, may mean a delay of program admission until requirements are fulfilled.
