AbstractThis thesis defines and presents discipline-based art education curricula as defined by Greer 1983 for Nigerian Art Education Students. Current requirements in art education programs both in Nigeria and the United States are compared in order to more fully understand and develop this course of study. Attention is paid to the national goals and the inherent culture of Nigeria. An analysis of the curriculum of five colleges with discipline-based and education programs has been studied in order to determine a suitable outline of curricula for college teachers in Nigeria. It is concluded that Nigerian teachers, through this proposed program, will be exposed to the contemporary discipline-based approach to art education, and that Nigerian children taught by means of this approach will be able to gain a better understanding and appreciation of their artistically rich culture.
