SUMMARY

Studying Art Teacher Education is a valuable choice and generally an essential first step for undergrads coveting to enter a career as an art curriculum consultant, a high school art teacher, or a fine arts professor. In fact, art teacher education is an uncommon degree coming in at the 223rd most popular area of study. In the last year, there were 881 art teacher education graduates. In-state tuition for art teacher education at private institutions is, on average, 2.8 times more costly than their public peers.

There are 338 colleges that offer art teacher education. 338 institutions is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other art teacher education undergrads, consider schools in Ohio which have the most students admitted to art teacher education annually. More generally, the best region to major in art teacher education is in the Great Lakes region with Kent State University at Kent, Ohio State University-Main Campus, and University of Wisconsin-Stout best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to study art teacher education is the Mid-American Conference with Northern Illinois University, Central Michigan University, and Kent State University at Kent representing the conference. That said, our choice for the best school for art teacher education is University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. You may also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The overall best school might not actually be the best school for every student. There might be tons more factors to think about when deciding on school. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely alter one's decision on which university to attend. Here at Authority, we have evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you are interested in which art teacher education college is home to the best campus, the answer is Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus. If you are very interested in which college is home to the top campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more in order to compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our well researched list for the schools with the best student life here and our choice for the university with the best student life for art teacher education is The College of New Jersey. Curious why? Continue reading to learn more about Authority's top choices. Many of our decisions might surprise you.

If expense is a primary factor in your decision on where to go to college, you might consider avoiding Pratt Institute-Main. Pratt Institute-Main is the most expensive college for art teacher education, at least for out of state enrollment. That being said, we have a list of the most expensive schools that might put the price tag at Pratt Institute-Main into perspective. For more context, you could want to know that art teacher education is the 309th most expensive degree in the nation, with an average associated cost of $23,000. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for art teacher education nationally is Vermont demonstrated with a cost of $41,280 at the main school in the state University of Vermont. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region of the country for art teacher education is the Southwest region which is best demonstrated with University of Arizona with a cost of $33,273, and Northern Arizona University with a cost of $16,613.

Our cheapest region for art teacher education is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Idaho with a cost of $4,208, Utah Valley University with a cost of $15,872, and University of Wyoming with a cost of $13,392. On the bright side, the most affordable college for art teacher education is Northern Illinois University. Authority.org's entire list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state learners can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $11,000 for a degree in art teacher education. The cost swells dramatically to a median of $24,100 for an out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our choice for the college representing the best value for art teacher education: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Through this link you can see our comprehensive list on the universities we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this idea is predicated on being an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for art teacher education majors can vary, but within two years finishing the degree students will typically earn in the neighborhood of $45,800. While there can be much variation in earnings; top positions can experience pay up to $90,800. Even straight out of university, the lowest earning opportunities within the art teacher education space make $23,000, which could be worse. The top earning grads from art teacher education attended The College of New Jersey and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of art teacher education stands pretty bad, falling within only the 4th percentile of all majors. The university with the most composite diversity for art teacher education is Pratt Institute-Main and here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Art Teacher Education is only within the 94th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even further below average in the 7th percentile. White students make up the largest share, 81%, of scholars majoring in art teacher education. Additionally, 88% of students seeking an art teacher education major are women.

The median score for art teacher education professors is 4 stars, a ranking which is surprisingly the median score across all majors; this is a fine. If you want to find the most popular art teacher education instructor in the nation, consider looking up Lynn Roller from University of California-Davis. It might surprise you, but the highest rated art teacher education instructors by student come from University of Wisconsin-Madison. If we including data beyond simply rankings we find that the university with comprehensively the best professors for art teacher education is Purdue University-Main Campus. You will find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as many of the top professors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest college to get into for art teacher education is University of Central Florida. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have a general page for the hardest colleges to get into. Although, we do hope you believe that approaching college from examples mainly formed from superlatives might cause issues. We encourage you to explore our other pages on different schools and explore some of Authority's informative background articles on essential details to look out for as your university search develops.
