Teaching, with Teacher Certification in Art (Preschool-Grade 12) and Teacher of Students with Disabilities (M.A.T.) - Graduate - 2011 University Catalog

You are viewing the 2011 University Catalog. Please see the newest version of the University Catalog for the most current version of this program's requirements.

The Master of Arts in Teaching Program in Subject Area and Teacher of Students with Disabilities is a 48 credit program designed to provide graduate students with a master's degree as well as dual certification: initial certification to teach in a subject area (P-12) and certification to teach students with disabilities in those settings. Students who apply to this program must hold a bachelor's degree, complete the Graduate School Application, and meet Graduate School requirements.

Additional undergraduate coursework in the certification content area may be required to meet State and University certification standards.

Upon successful completion of the program the student will be recommended to the State of New Jersey for initial teacher certification (Certificate of Eligibility with Advanced Standing, or CEAS) in the content area and in Teacher of Students with Disabilities. The CEAS authorizes the holder to teach in New Jersey public schools and expedites the ability to become certified in most other states. The CEAS never expires.

In New Jersey, candidates who have completed an initial teaching certification program must successfully complete one year of teaching in order to be eligible to receive a permanent Standard Certificate.

Note: Program requirements are subject to change.

ARFD122: Foundations II: 2D Design

Foundations II introduces students to the principles of 2-dimensional design in a variety of media. Major principles covered include composition, line, shape, volume, movement, value, rhythm, repetition, variation, scale, size, perspective, proportion, texture, balance, unity, harmony, and contrast. The course content consists of a variety of projects focusing on critical, theory-based problem solving, together with lectures and demonstrations. (2 hours lecture, 4 hours studio.) 3 sh.

ARFD123: Foundations III: Visual Organization - 3D Design

An introduction to the 3rd dimension of the world that we inhabit ("made" things, natural forms, and the occupation of space). Three-dimensional sensibility is progressively developed when basic components are manipulated by the effective use of direction, balance, axis, orientation, and relationship; in other words, organization (composition). Assignments in light, shape, shadow, depth, form, and movement are examined in a natural progression from 2D knowledge to 3D. Activities include lectures, conceptualization, observation, creation, discussion, and critical analysis for each project. The aesthetic consideration of materials and tools in this context add to the expressive output of three-dimensional study. The process may begin with concept, material or observation; it continues by way of lecture, demonstration, critical analysis and class discussion until each project is crafted to completion. (2 hours lecture, 4 hours studio.) 3 sh.

Prerequisites: ARFD 121.

ARFD125: Foundations V: Color, Light and Time

Color functions in many ways - as a visual phenomenon of light, as a perceptual occurrence, as a pigment with specific mixing properties, and as an element with powerful expressive and symbolic potential. It is important that artists and designers understand the principles and properties of color for use in their work in any medium. This course introduces students to the history, theory, and interdisciplinary use of color and color systems via lectures, demonstrations, and exercises. (2 hours lecture, 4 hours studio.) 3 sh.

Prerequisites: ARFD 121.
