Studio Art • Associate in Fine Arts

Transfer Program

Colleague Code: AFA.ARTST

Curriculum Code: AFA 102

Program Information:

This degree provides a basic historical, conceptual, and technical education in art. Believing that the artist’s success is dependent on both creative vision and technical expertise, the program encourages excellence, critical inquiry, and experimentation. These skills will prepare students to either transfer to a four-year university or seek employment in an art related field.

  • For students who plan to enter teaching or one of the professional fields or who plan to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts program at a transfer institution.
  • Since completion of the AFA does not complete the Illinois General Education Core Curriculum, students may need to complete the general education requirements of the school to which they transfer.
