ArtThe art curriculum at DCC prepares students for transfer to baccalaureate  level institutions which offer terminal degrees in art and other areas of study. Those pursuing degrees in graphic design, fine arts, art education, and general education are encouraged to select, in consultation with their advisors, from the courses listed below. Students who wish to pursue art for personal enrichment are encouraged to participate in our program offerings. Art professionals are employed in a variety of occupational fields including, but not limited to the following: advertising, gallery and museum specialities, publishing, medical illustrators, set designers, interior design specialists, landscape designers, art therapists, art educators, and as fine artists. Visit the Art Department Online.

The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC. Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.
