    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

CSET Waivers

 

Subject Matter in Art Compentency Evaluations

Proving Subject Matter Competency is just one step in earning a CA Teaching Credential. As a CA Commission on Teacher Credentialing Approved Subject Matter in Art Program, the combined coursework of Otis' ACT: Teacher Credential Preparation minor with the Painting, Photography, or Sculptures/New Genres BFA requirements satisfy the CA Subject Matter in Art requirements (MS Word Doc), allowing students with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 to waive the CSET (California Subject Exam for Teachers). A fifth year of study at another institution, or a two year internship at a CTC approved K-12 school, is required to complete the remaining CA Single Subject Credential requirements.

 

Non-Otis ACT: Teacher Credential Preparation students who hold a BFA and/or MFA from another institution can apply to waive the CA Subject Exam for Teachers (CSET) in Art by completing the steps outlined below. Evaluation of Subject-Matter in Art Competency takes 6-8 weeks to complete and there is no guarantee of CSET Waiver approval. Applicants are encouraged to review the CA Commission on Teacher Credentialing's Subject Matter in Art Requirements (MS Word Doc) before applying.

 

How to apply for a CSET Waiver:

• Complete the SMArtCE application form [PDF] and mail to the address below along with:
1. Official transcripts (from each college/university you attended)
2. Course descriptions (photocopied from course catalog) of all courses to be evaluated.
3. 10-20 images of work and/or 5-10 min. of video on CD, DVD, or URL that represents the breadth of required art coursework.
4. $80.00 (Master Card, Visa or Check Payable to Otis College of Art and Design, with "SMArtCE" in the memo line)
5. A self-addressed stamped envelope for return of materials and evaluation results.
