Associate in Fine Arts with Concentration in Art / Transfer Curriculum

Fine Arts in Arts Recommended Transfer Curriculum

This curriculum is designed to facilitate smooth transfer to a four-year institution for the completion of a baccalaureate degree and it meets the requirements for the AFA (Associate of Fine Arts) degree. Consult the Transfer Center for help in selecting courses appropriate for the program at the college or university where you plan to attend.

Students will need to complete additional general education requirements in humanities and social and behavioral sciences at the institution to which they transfer. The reduced credits in general education at SSC enable students to complete the required sequences of art courses during their freshman and sophomore years, which replicates the course-taking patterns for art students in the four-year institutions.

Faculty are available during scheduled office hours to advise art students about their courses and programs.
