Award: Associate of Arts degree, A.A.

Code: AA.VSL.STUDIO-ART

Studio Arts - see www.aacc.edu

Purpose: Provides the fundamental foundation in the visual arts to prepare students for transferring to a 4-year college, university or art school to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the visual arts. In addition to the ability to transfer credits toward a bachelor’s degree at a 4-year school students would have the skills to pursue entry-level positions in art galleries, community arts education and apprenticeships or internships with professional artists.

Students’ options after completing their transfer degree are dependent on the educational pathway and degree or certificate program that the student selected. The options are many. Some options might include working as an independent studio artist, teaching in the studio arts field and working in a gallery or museum.
