Visual Arts Design Education

College of Liberal Arts

Students in Purdue’s visual arts design education program develop a broad understanding of the visual arts and the desire to communicate this understanding to others.  The program provides a solid foundation in the liberal arts as well as specialized skills in studio arts, curriculum planning, teaching strategies, and verbal communication.  Students may enroll in a comprehensive visual arts curriculum or one with an emphasis in applied design.  Course work provides a balance between the theoretical and practical needs of teachers.  Throughout the program, under the supervision of faculty members, students receive practicum experiences by observing in the public schools.
