Today’s world relies heavily on visual representations and visual literacy. The study of art and design prepares students to be creative artists and/or engage in the many fields that utilize the visual arts. Instruction is provided in both the traditional fine arts and modern media. The curriculum is designed for students who want to specialize in one of two main concentrations: Art and Design or Art History.
Art students who complete their Associate in Science degree may either transfer to a bachelor’s degree program and/or work in the fields of media, publishing, public relations, and creative industries, in galleries and auction houses, in museums and libraries, and in government and nonprofit organizations.
