Buffalo State's art education program, established in 1930, is the oldest state-sponsored art teacher preparation program in the nation, offering a bachelor of science in art education and a minor in art therapy. Because students take fine arts, design, and art education courses, they develop a broad understanding of both art and the theory and practice of art education. Our graduates are highly sought after by school districts in all 50 states.
Psychology is the scientific study of behavior. Depending on their interests, students prepare to pursue careers in the helping professions or in positions that require a liberal arts background. Students also are prepared to pursue graduate study in psychology or a related field. We offer a bachelor of arts (B.A.), bachelor of science (B.S.), and psychology honors program (B.A. or B.S.). Scholarships and summer research fellowships are available for this popular program.
