Associate in Fine Arts - Theatre
The Associate in Fine Arts Degree in Visual Art is a part of the career path for today's artist.
What is Visual Art?
The Associate in Fine Arts degree is designed for students who are primarily interested in studying the visual arts. This degree is for students preparing to work in the field of visual arts, and for those who wish to transfer into four-year universities or art schools that grant the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree. Students take 25 credit hours of General Education requirements and an 18 credit fine arts core. The fine arts core consists of six classes that create a strong foundation for success in the practice of studio art. Students must also complete 18 hours of studio art electives from a wide variety of studio art courses such as ceramics, sculpture, painting, drawing, photography and digital imaging, and printmaking.
For transfer, five universities in Kentucky offer the Bachelor in Fine Arts degree (BFA): Western Kentucky University, University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, Northern Kentucky University, and Murray State University. Most art institutes in the United States grant the BFA as well.
WKCTC’s Paducah School of Art and Design has memorandum agreements with Murray State University and Southern Illinois University-Carbondale to ensure seamless 2+2 transfer into their four-year bachelor programs.
