Return to Alphabetical List of Curricula Return to: Alphabetical List of Curricula

: 003

The art curricula include two tracks leading to the AA in arts and sciences (art and art history), and two AFA degrees  (graphic design and studio art).

The basic art curriculum is designed to provide a foundation of general art courses supplemented by general education requirements. The core of skills provided by this foundation encourages a broad exposure to the arts and prepares students for advanced study and careers in many areas, including studio art, art education, applied design, museum studies, and art marketing.

The following curriculum offers basic art courses that will prepare the student for transfer, leading to a degree of bachelor of arts or bachelor of fine arts from a four-year college or university. Completion of all requirements for this track will lead to the award of the AA in arts and sciences. In keeping with the College’s commitment to serve the varied educational needs of the community, the art program accommodates students who seek careers in the arts, as well as those who want to strengthen established skills or find a means of self-expression.
