Liberal Studies, Art Option (AA)
The goal of the Art option of the Associate in Arts degree in Liberal Studies is to prepare students to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree in the visual arts. Students will be prepared with courses generally completed in the first two years of a baccalaureate degree art curriculum. It conforms to the articulation agreement among state of Oklahoma two-year and four-year institutions of higher education.
Opportunities for study include drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, and art history. Students can enroll in studio classes and display their work. A capstone project of original work is completed in the final semester.
Specific objectives include:
- Basic Art foundation courses required by art majors transferring into baccalaureate programs.
- An opportunity for non-art majors to explore personal interests in the visual arts and to acquire a greater understanding of their visual world.
- The opportunity to enroll in art studio classes in order to display their work and to receive feedback and critical information from others.
- The opportunity to submit original works (visual and written) for final critique by faculty (program assessment). (The assessment examines the degree of formal and personal development, recognizes areas of concern, and recognizes strength for future development).
- A basic general education foundation of English, history, government, science, math, and liberal arts appropriate for students transferring to a four-year institution.
