This is a liberal education degree that focuses on art within the context of a broad educational experience in the arts and humanities, the natural and physical sciences, and the social sciences that make up half of the program requirements. Therefore, it is a suitable degree for students who seek a general liberal arts degree with an art emphasis. This program will prepare students for transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a BA (bachelor of arts) degree, such as University of Maryland, College Park.
