The Department of Arts Administration, Education & Policy offers a Licensure-Only option for those who already hold a BFA or BA in an art-related field. Completion of this two-year program does not result in a second degree; rather it prepares the student for gaining licensure in the state of Ohio. Successful progress through the Licensure Only program includes educational coursework, classroom observation, pre-practicum and practicum experiences. Although this is a non-degree granting program, it is approved for financial aid because it prepares students for a professional license. Students interested in pursuing the Licensure Only Program should read the Licensure Only Program 2017-2018 Handbook to determine if he/she is a good candidate for this program. Contact Lauren Pace if you would like to know more about this type of Licensure option.
