If you’re interested in a career in fine or applied arts, our Associate in Fine Arts (AFA): Visual Arts degree program is for you. The AFA program focuses on continued training in art to enhance the portfolio if you’re seeking competitive admission into bachelor’s degree programs, or if you want additional training in art without pursuing a bachelor’s degree. Transfer students will still be required to meet the General Education Core requirements of the receiving college or university, as well as foreign language and/or health and physical education requirements.
Make sure to meet regularly with an advisor to determine the best course of study for your program of interest.
This program is also available to high school students through our Career & College Promise program.
