The Arts Education Program in the College of Fine Arts provides degree programs and pathways to educator licensure in art, dance, film, music, and theatre at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Arts Education Program prepares and trains educators to work authentically alongside children, youth, and citizens in various educational, community, and artistic contexts. In response to the collaborative and expansive work, the field of arts education has grown to encompass, the College of Fine Arts seeks to meet the demands of more interdisciplinary practice. The program provides educators and teaching artists opportunities to not only teach the arts in their traditional forms, but also in ways that promote interpersonal, social, political, and environmental action.


“The University of Utah’s BFA Dance Teaching Degree has provided me curricular and paid community-engaged opportunities to discover how much young people truly enjoy moving and dancing, especially when they have a teacher who possesses the expertise to foster skills in dance and enhance learning. The courses embedded in the BFA Dance Teaching curricula are incredibly relevant and provide me the necessary skills to perform at a high level in my art form and the classroom.” — Amber Foster, Modern Dance Teaching BFA Program, and BTSALP Fellow.
