Program Summary

Explore your artistic side studying art, art history, art appreciation, and digital media. This program is a great way to get a foundation in artistic practice, theory, and develop your skills as an artist from trained instructors. Courses allow students to explore and advance their artistic techniques as well as study conceptual issues in art and design that promote the development of technical and problem-solving skills.

A degree in art provides a pathway to pursue a degree at a four-year institution. The program leads graduates to a variety of career paths that contribute to society and culture, including museum studies, curatorial work, graphic design, education, and much more.
