MCTC's Associate of Fine Arts (A.F.A.) Degree in Visual Arts is a combination of liberal arts general education courses and foundation courses in Art and Art History. The A.F.A. offers you an opportunity to think seriously about a career in and related to visual art. You will complete the degree with a portfolio to prepare you for transfer to a four-year baccalaureate program in Fine Arts (B.A. or B.F.A.). Students desiring a two-year AFA degree for job placement or enhancement, as well as those returning to school for enrichment purposes will also benefit from this degree.
Coursework will cover art and art history from all over the world and across time periods. Additionally, core courses in design, drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, and sculpture lead students to more advanced study and creation in those areas, as well as watercolor, printmaking and direct metal sculpture.
