Vs. National Avg.
Art teacher education is the 223rd most popular degree in America, with 881 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #224 Culinary Arts, and narrowly lost to #222 Asian Studies.
The degree is offered at a total of 338 colleges across the nation, and is the 67th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 4% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.
It is also worth noting that 56% of colleges offering art teacher education are public making it a pretty accessible field.
The great lakes produces the most art teacher education graduates, largely led by Kent State University at Kent, while it’s the Mid-American Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Ohio ranks highest, with particular help from Kent State University at Kent and Miami University-Oxford.
All that being said, no individual school produces more art teacher education graduates than Alabama A & M University, which graduated 24 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study art teacher education). More students studied art teacher education as a percentage of total students at Massachusetts College of Art and Design than any other college.
