The Associate of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art (Studio Art A.F.A.: 910), is a degree for mastery in the professional fine arts for those planning to transfer to a B.F.A. program. An A.F.A. degree is similar to the first two years of a B.F.A. and requires at least 60 percent of the course credit to be in studio work and related areas. A recommended semester by semester course of study is outlined in the college catalog. Students should consult with an art faculty member for advising when choosing classes to fulfill their degree requirements.
The Associate of Arts degree can have a concentration in Studio Art (Studio Art: 003) or Art History (Art History (R): 059). Students in these programs fulfill the general education requirements of the foundation years leading to a liberal arts degree in these areas. Many students transfer with their associate degree to art schools or other four year institutions.
