RCCC offers associate degree in fine arts
Prospective students can apply and register now to take classes in August in Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s new associate degree program in fine arts.
Students will be able to choose a painting or photography concentration.
The associate degree in fine arts (AFA) program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year fine arts program. The AFA program also will be suitable for students who want to focus on their personal creative development, expand their portfolios or work in related creative industries.
With appropriate education and training, an AFA degree can lead to a number of career options, including career artist, graphic designer, commercial photographer, photojournalist, art director, theater set designer, museum curator and business owner.
RCCC’s AFA program will require 65 credit hours, 36 of which will be fine arts. Students will have some flexibility in choosing which arts courses they take, while concentrating in painting or photography.
RCCC encourages anyone with an interest in art to inquire about the new AFA program; previous art experience is not a requirement.
Classes for the fall 2009 semester begin Aug. 17. New students must complete an admissions application before they can register for classes. For more information, contact RCCC’s Student Services Department at 704-216-3593 or 704-216-3637.
