So if you studied education at Bennington, does your degree only permit you to teach elementary school? Or could you teach middle or high school too? And say I studied visual arts and education, would that degree allow me to teach art at a high school level, or? — Asked by Anonymous

Bennington no longer offers a Master of Arts in Teaching, so you do not graduate certified to teach in any way. 

The undergrad education curriculum is currently under reevaluation, so it’s unclear how big an area of study it will be in the future, but as of right now classes in educational policy and theory could form a substantial part of your liberal arts education, which would prepare you for a classroom certification course elsewhere. 

But it’s all a bit up in the air right now. Sorry.
