Associate in Arts (AA) DegreeApply
Plan to earn a bachelor's degree in fine arts? Start with us. You save money and get a top-quality education. Learn from instructors who are experts in their field and leave here well prepared to succeed at a four-year.
What You Learn in the Fine Arts Pathway
General education courses teach you about the world, yourself and others. You study literature, ethics, world religions, film, music, and theatre. You discuss how art is essential to human expression and action, and its connections to history and culture. You get a foundation of skills in your fine art courses and can concentrate your studies on a specific discipline. Painting. Graphic art. Pottery.
What Can I Do With a Career in Fine Arts?
A Fine Arts degree gives you a lot of career flexibility. Be an art historian or museum director. Go into graphic design and build brand identity. Or industrial design where you can imprint products with your unique style and flair.
Some fine art students want to explore special effects and animation. We have IT courses that can give you an hands-on introduction to those specialties. And with some additional training, you can spend your life helping students discover the joy of art. Be a teacher.
A Solid Foundation
