The Performing Arts Programs are associate of art and associate of fine arts degree programs that prepare students for transfer into four-year degree programs in music or theatre. Students are typically prepared to enter at a junior level and specialize in their field in their final two years at a four-year institution. Faculty advisors are extremely important in the process of determining appropriate transfer courses. The following degrees prepare students for these fields: music educator, conductor, composer, performer, actor, director, music director, technical director, stage manager, lighting designer, set designer, sound designer, costume designer, make-up artist, playwright, theatrical marketing/publicity director.
The Visual Arts Programs are applied degree programs that prepare students for a variety of entry-level positions in the field of their specialization. Graduates may enter the field in such positions as exhibitors and marketers of art, graphic designers, digital filmmakers, photographers, and publishers. After further study, graduates may continue their education to acquire the baccalaureate degree and become gallery assistants/directors, coordinators, writers, producers, directors, graphic designers, illustrators, interior designers, fashion designers, consultants, managers, and art educators.
