For further details and procedures, see the general section on teacher certification degree requirements at the beginning of the Peck School of the Arts section of the undergraduate catalog.

Certification Requirements

Following admission to the Art Education Program (see admission requirements), and successful completion of the specified Art Education course of studies, a student seeking recommendation for teacher certification must successfully fulfill the following requirements:

1. Fulfill all degree requirements.

2. Fulfill the Field Experience Requirement.

3. Maintain a 2.75 cumulative GPA or higher while being in the program.

4. Pass the Praxis II Art Content Exam.

5. Successfully complete student teaching.

6. Demonstrate mastery of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for a career in the field of art education through the use of a Teaching Portfolio (see description below).

The Art Education Area and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction require that students compile a teaching portfolio that demonstrates teaching proficiency. The required reflections, artifacts, statements, and assessment composing this portfolio will be compiled mostly as a part of their major two art education methods classes (Art Ed 327 and 328). Fewer documents will be produced during their student teaching capstone classes (Art Ed 425 and 426). Some of the documents that this portfolio includes are: Copy of current resume, teaching philosophy, reflections on the Ten Wisconsin Teaching Standards, artifacts supporting the reflections showing your work as a teacher and your students’ work, lesson plans written and taught in field experiences, field experience assessments, clinical assessments during student teaching, and your professional development plan.

7. Teacher Performance Assessment, EdTPA (see explanation below).

This is a performance-based test in which student teachers plan, instruct, and assess a visual arts lesson plan for K-12 following the requirements outlined in the EdTPA Handbook. Among these requirements student teachers must show strong curriculum based on four types of objectives, the use of academic language derived from the research of art content and contexts, and cohesive sequencing of art appreciation, artmaking, and art critique. Along with all this, students should demonstrate a theoretical use of visual art learning theory, elaborated skills in the documentation of in-progress and finalized student work, and an ability to reflect on their own teaching, as a way to inform the following steps in their instructional sequence.

Area of Concentration Requirements and Enrollment Management

In order to maintain the highest quality of service to our students, all areas (Ceramics, Cross-Disciplinary Studio, Digital Studio Practice, Fibers, Jewelry and Metalsmithing, Painting and Drawing, Photography, Print and Narrative Forms, Sculpture, Design and Visual Communication, and Art Education) may select their own enrollment management mechanisms. Options available to areas include portfolio review, gateway courses, registration prioritizing (ex: "seniors only" and/or "majors only" courses), higher GPA for the area of concentration, or other appropriate mechanisms. Students who successfully matriculate as BFA degree candidates should make themselves familiar with the requirements of their chosen area (as outlined in the undergraduate catalog). Students also should discuss area requirements with area faculty to ensure that they understand fully what will be required of them.

Appeal Process

An appeal process is established for students who do not meet the department's criteria for admissions, classification, GPA, and area of concentration enrollment management requirements. The appeal process will provide an opportunity for individual students to request admission as an art major or enrollment into courses as exceptions to the department's enrollment policies based on defined, pre-determined conditions. All appeals are to be directed to the Undergraduate Advisor or PSOA advisor, who will forward the appeals to the department chair or appropriate appeals committee. The department chair or appeals committee will consult with the First Year Program Director, area head, faculty, advisors, and student if necessary before making a decision.

Laptop Requirement

Laptops are required for all Art & Design programs. The goal of the Peck School of the Arts laptop requirement is to provide the opportunity for students to work extensively and intuitively with the most significant contemporary tool for their work so that they will excel not only in their courses but also in their profession after they graduate.

Degree Programs

BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS (STUDIO ART)

This undergraduate degree prepares students for entrance into professional art fields. Once students meet the 36-credit Art-Intended requirements outlined above, they are admitted to the Art & Design program. In addition to satisfying the core curriculum, art students select studio courses from both 2D and 3D disciplines, take required art history courses, choose studio electives, and begin satisfying the requirements of their declared art area concentration.

A choice of curricula is offered to permit students to concentrate in ceramics, cross-disciplinary studio, digital studio practice, fibers, jewelry and metalsmithing, painting and drawing, photography, print and narrative forms, or sculpture. Students must complete a minimum of 24 credits in their area of concentration but may take more by choosing additional studio electives in their area.

In order to graduate, students must complete two 3-credit critical thinking courses and a 4-credit capstone: Art 604 Professional Practices (3 cr) and Art 605 BFA Exhibition (1 cr). Students must complete a total of 85 credits of art to graduate with a BFA (Studio Art).

BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS (STUDIO ART) IN DESIGN AND VISUAL COMMUNICATION
(130-Credit BFA Degree)

Students in Design and Visual Communication are required to have a laptop computer for their coursework by the first week of class, beginning with Art 221 (Introduction to Design) and for all subsequent courses in Design and Visual Communication. Visit http://www4.uwm.edu/psoa/admission/laptoprequirement/ for more information.

To be admitted into Design and Visual Communication, students must pass Design and Visual Communication Portfolio Review. To be eligible for acceptance into DVC, students must complete Art 124 (Design Survey), Art 221 (Introduction to Design) and Art 223 (Introduction to Typography) with a B- or better, and admission to Art & Design.

After admission into Design and Visual Communication, students must:

a. Complete Art 321 (DVC I) and Art 323 (Typography II) with a grade of B- or better to enroll in Art 421 and Art 423.

b. Complete Art 421 (DVC II) and Art 422 (Design Methodologies) with a grade of B- or better to enroll in Art 529.

c. Complete Art 529 (DVC III) as Senior Capstone Experience concurrently with Art 606 (BFA Exhibition in Design).

d. Complete Art 324 (Web Design) and either Art 325 (Multimedia Design) or Art 424 (Topics in Web, Interaction and Screen Design). These required courses are not part of the core sequence, and may be taken any time after prerequisites are met.

e. Complete two of the six following courses (6 credits): Art 423 (Experimental Typography), Art 426 (Motion Graphics), Art 524 (Professional Practice), Art 526 (Research in Universal Design & Fabrication), Art 528 (Print Production & Presentation Techniques) or either Art 325 or Art 424 not taken in point d.

f. Complete 9 credits of Design and Visual Communication Expanded Studies (ES) all outside the Peck School of the Arts. See your advisor in the Peck School of the Arts Student Services Office for an updated list of recommended courses.

Students may petition to substitute for some or all of the DVC Expanded Studies courses. Likely candidates would be students with a high GPA who have tested out of freshman English; double majors; and students with a keen and credible interest in another area of study. Petitions to substitute for courses will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by Design faculty and will be subject to an appeals process.

BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS (ART EDUCATION)

This undergraduate degree prepares students to teach art both in schools and in the community. Once students are admitted to the Art & Design program, they can apply to the Art Education program through Art Ed 227, Introduction to Art Education (see application procedures). In addition to satisfying the core curriculum, art education students also must take required art history and critical thinking courses, and three education courses. They are required to take studio courses from both 2D and 3D disciplines, and to focus their choices of studio electives to develop an emphasis in an area. In addition to top-notch studio preparation in a wide range of media, our students focus on urban issues and art education for social justice. Theory is integrated into practical early field and student teaching experiences. Throughout the program, assessment is aligned with the requirements for licensure under “PI-34,” the state law governing certification in Wisconsin. Students who demonstrate mastery of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of professional educators during student teaching are recommended to the Department of Public Instruction in the State of Wisconsin for a PK4-12 teaching license.

Bachelor of Fine Arts (Art Education). The Art Education program requires a total of 130 credits for graduation distributed as follows:

Bachelor of Arts (Art) Hubei 3+1 BA

The Department of Art & Design and the Hubei University of Technology in Wuhan, China, have created a unique program for the students at Hubei University to finish their BA degree at UWM. There are two 3+1 BA tracks: Design Studies and Digital Fabrication & Design.

Hubei University of Technology students will enter the Department of Art & Design with 90 credits and will take the last 30 credits of their BA degree at UWM over two semesters. Hubei University students will enter the Design Studies or Digital Fabrication & Design tracks of the BA degree. Hubei University students must satisfy all UWM GER requirements.

The TOEFL scores of Hubei students may determine whether or not they need remedial work in English before they begin the 3+1 BA programs.

Laptop Computer Requirement
Laptops are required for both 3+1 BA programs. The goal of the Peck School of the Arts laptop requirement is to provide the opportunity for students to work extensively and intuitively with the most significant contemporary tool for their work so that they will excel not only in their courses but also in their profession after they graduate.

3+1 BA in Design Studies

Students will enter UWM with 90 credits towards the BA in Design Studies (see sequence for freshman, sophomore, and junior years above). The senior year sequence of courses at UWM for the Hubei 3+1 BA in Design Studies follows:

CERTIFICATE IN DIGITAL FABRICATION AND DESIGN
Coordinator: Frankie Flood
Undergraduate Advisor, Department of Art and Design: Allison B. Cooke

The Certificate in Digital Fabrication and Design is open to all students seeking a bachelor’s degree from UWM, to students who previously received a Bachelor’s degree from UWM or any other accredited college or university, and to people who do not plan to pursue a college or university degree (non-degree students) but who have a strong interest in this subject area. To be admitted to the University as non-degree students, individuals must meet regular University admission requirements. Students completing the certificate not in conjunction with a degree are not eligible for financial aid.

This certificate is designed to give students an understanding of the software environments, materials, and equipment used in 2D and 3D digital fabrication excluding architectural scale. The certificate is for students in any major at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, but specifically for Art & Design students who wish to complement their major with an additional concentration in Digital Fabrication. 

Students enrolling in the Digital Fabrication and Design Certificate Program are required to earn a minimum of 18 credits. The required credits are organized to be taken sequentially, and range from a 200-level course to 500-level courses. Courses counting for the certificate may not be taken on a credit/no credit basis. Students must achieve a grade point average of 2.5 or above in all courses counting toward the certificate.

Interested students should contact the program coordinator as soon as they decide to pursue the Digital Fabrication and Design Certificate. The coordinator’s function is to help the student design a program of study from among the available courses and to guide the student in completing that program.

To earn the Digital Fabrication and Design Certificate (18 credits) the following requirements must be met:

Complete the 18 Core Course credits in the Digital Fabrication and Design track with a minimum grade point average of 2.5.
