My friend wants to become a art teacher but she's not sure what she should major in. There is a program for teaching at her school but she could also get her degree in art. Which do you think would be more beneficial?
She can study art and get teaching certification but I think it depends on what her true passion is. If she wants to focus on art, study art. The teaching part can come next. If she is more passionate about teaching, go that route.
I think Junie is right. If her passion is art, studying art and taking the classes needed to become certified to teach could open doors for her outside of education. Getting a teaching degree in art education might have more limitations later on.
