Admission Requirements for Art Education
To become an Art Education major, you will apply as a freshmen to Miami with the normal application process. In addition to that, you will submit a digital portfolio of work in Slide Room. If students do not enter Miami University as a declared Art Education major, they must transfer in. Below are the requirements for transfer.
Transfer portfolio requirements:
Students who are denied admission in their initial attempt may apply a second time. Students who are denied in their second attempt are ineligible for further consideration.
The transfer requirements are also listed on the flyer below.
Students entering the Art Department in their first year of study may declare Art Education as their major and be admitted to the Bachelor of Science in Art with Multi-Age Teacher Licensure (B.S.) Program. A student who was not initially admitted as an art education student may seek admission to that program after completing Art 195. Students will be admitted as space and resources allow, and admission decisions will be made early second semester each year. Students eligible for admission consideration are transfer students from other schools, Miami students desiring to change or declare their major, and students transferring from Hamilton and Middletown campuses to Oxford campus.
METHOD FOR SUBMITTING YOUR PORTFOLIO
Students may submit their portfolio in one of two ways: via their website or on a CD. Whichever method is chosen, the submission must be well-organized, easily navigable with accompanying contact information.
Website URL’s will be accepted via a cover letter accompanying your DARS/Transcript.
