By taking Art 205 (3 hours) and any six of the other courses (additional 18 hours), an endorsement in Media Arts may be added to a Mississippi Class A and above level license provided the educator holds that level license (total of 21 hours).

Art 205* is the only required course. Other courses are selected in consultation with an advisor according to the candidate’s interest. Advanced courses including Graphic Design II (ART 216—3 hours), Graphic Design III (ART 315—3 hours), or Graphic Design IV (ART 316—3 hours) are acceptable for coursework leading to the endorsement in Media Arts (K-12). Graduate graphic design courses may also be allowed.
