3. The teaching major (B.A. with a K-12 certification) is combined with a major in Secondary Education to prepare those planning to teach in the public schools.

The Flora Kirsch Beck Gallery presents artwork by Dana Freeman. “I hope that by using materials unusually, I can find a fresh expression for my ideas and create a lasting impression for the viewer,” says Freeman.
“From a distance, my paintings often appear to be a rendered depiction of a scene, but upon closer viewing, the parts are revealed as abstract pieces, built one layer upon another into realistic images.” — Bruce McCombs
