DEGREES AND CERTIFICATES

A.A. Degree and Certificates of Achievement

The degree or certificates provide students with a comprehensive foundation in the history, theory and practice of art. Each student acquires observational, compositional, technical, interpretative and expressive competency through participation in an extensive range or studio art courses. Exposure to a culturally diverse art history curriculum prepares each student to analyze, assess and discuss works of art from a variety of historical and style periods. Proficiencies are demonstrated through class projects, critiques, research papers, essays and objective tests. Program assessment is measured by portfolios, juried and public exhibitions, program completion, transferability and periodic program reviews. Students qualify to pursue a variety of art-related careers and advanced degree options.
