When to complete certification
Once you’re in the Teacher Education Program and you’ve declared your major in studio art, music, or kinesiology, you may decide to complete your K-12 certification for music, art, or physical education.
You’ll complete your major course requirements in addition to completing your education coursework. For example, a music major works toward course completion in both education and in music, graduating with a bachelor of music (B.Mus.) degree and K-12 certification in music.
Fine arts scholarships
If you have an interest in the fine arts (music, art, theatre and dance), you can apply for one of our fine arts scholarships. The steps are simple:
- Complete your admissions application and be admitted to Cornell College.
- Complete our fine arts scholarship application by March 1.
- Audition for a music scholarship or a theatre and dance scholarship. Or submit your art portfolio for an art scholarship.
Visit a Cornell class
Sitting in on an education course can be a great way to get a feel for our program and to see One Course At A Time in action. You can attend one of our upcoming Visit Days when we have many visiting students and their parents take a tour, visit a class, and meet with us. Or you can schedule an individual visit on a day that works best for your schedule.
