The Associate in Arts in Art History for Transfer provides students with both a strong studio experience that integrates conceptual and technical artistic skills with personal and creative exploration as well as a valuable foundation of Art history that includes both Western and non-Western cultures and societies. The art history emphasis degree was established to allow students to pursue concentrated study in both studio art and art history. We offer exceptional studio art courses in the foundation areas of drawing, painting, design and sculpture; in art history we offer courses that span from prehistoric times to the present in both Western and non-western cultures and societies. Additional areas of expertise are in Ceramics, Art Education, Gallery Technology, Murals and Community Art, and Photography. This degree is for students wishing to pursue study in fields that demand knowledge in both history and practice, such as curatorial studies, museum studies, or education. Transfer students are urged to consult a counselor and Art faculty to learn more about admission requirements to four-year institutions. Upon completion of this degree, students will be prepared for pursuing a BA/BS in Art History. The specific goal of the Associate in Arts in Art History for Transfer program it to allow students a seamless transfer into a baccalaureate program in Art History at a California State University.
