The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Arts Integration (PBC-AI) is offered exclusively through the Towson Learning Network. If you are interested in applying for a future cohort, you must contact TLN and the program director, Susan J. Rotkovitz.
Towson University’s PBC-AI is offered in partnership with the University of Maryland, College Park, UMBC and Johns Hopkins University. This program works cooperatively with Arts Education in Maryland Schools Alliance (AEMS) to provide opportunities for teaching and learning in and through the arts at all Maryland schools.
The Arts Integration Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program is an interdisciplinary approach to arts education incorporating a variety of art forms (Art, Theatre, Dance, Music) as they apply to teaching across the curriculum in Maryland’s schools, PK-12. This certificate supports Towson University’s mission to provide programs that enhance the teaching skills and professional development of educators and teaching-artists.
Students apply to the program through Towson University Learning Network. A minimum of 9 of the 18 units for the certificate must be taken through the Arts Integration Institute. The program is designed for flexible delivery to teachers, with courses taught on-site in local school districts. Those interested in the program should contact the program director, Susan J.
