Associate of Arts
Students who complete Art and Art History courses will develop strong foundation level art practices with a variety of medium and techniques. Courses will stimulate conceptual thinking and critical analysis through direct application and experience, as well as foster an understanding of art within history and culture. Art and Art History courses prepare students for transfer to universities and art schools and provide students with the necessary skills to enter the arts workforce.
Students who major in the field of art have a variety of opportunities open to them. Choices include careers in teaching, art criticism and appraisal, historic preservation, gallery/museum studies, or work as practicing artists.
