Add: On page 68, in place of deleted entry:
Students desiring licensure in Art, K–12, must complete the following, meet the requirements outlined in the Education section of the catalog, and meet with the appropriate advisor in the Department of Education.
I. Required courses in the program—47 hours, including: ART 110, 111, 112, 400, 451; one course from 113 or 114; one course from 210 or 220; one course from 230 or 240; 12 hours of Art History courses, including ARTH 201 and 202; 9 additional studio hours in one medium.
The overall impact of these changes will reduce the total number of studio courses (by 6 total semester hours) required for the BA in Art, while still meeting state requirements for art education licensure.
Art Education students are required to meet North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction competencies for licensure. These include specific studio requirements. Up to this point, students have been required to take all of the ART 200-level studio courses to meet these competencies. However, with the Art Department’s recent curriculum changes, all art majors now take Applied Media Programs (ART 110 and 111) which include modules that address each of the studio areas at the ART 100-level. In the past, art education students were required to take painting and printmaking, sculpture and ceramics, in addition to photography. Thus, they were taking 9 semester hours more than a regular art major. By replacing the and with or and eliminating photography, art education student’s curriculum is in line with the regular art major’s curriculum, and reduces the requirements for graduation and licensure by 6 semester hours. The removal of photography (3 semester hours) is offset by the Art Department’s previously approved additional studio requirement (9 semester hours in one medium).
The prior APC documents approved for the Art Department’s curriculum change to Applied Media Programs demonstrated no impact on Art Department resources. As all art education students are essentially art majors, they are already being served by the previously approved changes.
