The Arts in Education Program prepares you to design and deliver arts-based initiatives in our schools and communities. Formal education during this era was practical and aimed primarily to train priests and scribes. Students pursuing a career as a secondary band or choral teacher are advised to also investigate learning opportunities within the Bachelor of Music Education program.
Graduates in Education have careers in educational pyschology, human resources, in marae-based training, in government agencies, and in the planning and servicing of education in New Zealand and overseas. Here we witness daily how the arts create community, and a sense of belonging for our most vulnerable youth.
Integrated education also affords the opportunity for real-world application of the math and science education knowledge. This 4 year Arts Education Program leads to a BEd degree and full teacher certification. Deans from both the McKay School of Education and the College of Fine Arts and Communications were in attendance, along with faculty, family, and friends.
The arts also teach children that there a several paths to take when approaching problems and that all problems can have more than one solution. There are also certain programs in culinary arts that are designed for those who wish to obtain an associate degree and certification in culinary.
Depending on need, subcommittees of the Council are created to address certain topics, to conduct research on behalf of the Council and/or to design special events sponsored by the AEAC. Our position: Arts North Carolina believes legislators should make informed and responsible decisions in the current budget process based on the fact that a small investment in the arts yields a high return.
