INTEGRATED ARTS CERTIFICATE (09-2009)


Early Childhood Education majors have the option of pursuing a certificate program in Integrated Arts. This certificate will provide a thorough introduction to the discipline of arts-based teaching, emphasizing an approach that integrates arts learning with other disciplines. Integrated Arts provides learning "in and through" the arts, which are an integral and important part of a young child’s development and communication skill set. Early Childhood Education students who obtain the Integrated Arts Certificate will, in effect, have a “specialization” in the arts, enhancing both their teaching skills and employment possibilities.
