Become proficient in sharing your talents with others in a way that instructs as well as inspires. Become a certified Teaching Artist. When you complete your coursework at the University of the Arts, you’ll have the knowledge of educational methods necessary to work in schools and community sites. You’ll also have professional teaching skills developed through hands-on experience working alongside master teachers. Learn how to design, implement and manage your own residency as well as the business of being a teaching artist.
The Teaching Artist Certificate will also make you more marketable—it can lead to more interviews because it shows prospective employers you have the appropriate educational credentials. It helps justify a new employer’s decision to choose you to be part of their educational curriculum.
Recognizing the role of the artist as a vital component of PreK-12 educational reform, the online Teaching Artist Certificate program was designed by the University of the Arts and the Philadelphia Arts in Education Partnership in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. UArts was the first degree-granting institution in the country to offer a Teaching Artist Certificate program.
This research-based certificate program will build the knowledge and capacity of artists to work alongside teachers and arts specialists in PreK-12 classrooms and community settings to create and implement best practices residency programs that support learning in and through the arts.
