Return to Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical

The Art program functions as a vital part of the college by providing quality instruction to our students and our community. It offers courses for students majoring in Arts, leading to the Associate Degree; also offered is the required course work to fulfill the first two years of available 2 + 2 transfer agreements, leading to a bachelor’s degree.

The program also provides courses that satisfy the general education requirements in aesthetics for students majoring in other disciplines. The courses available which will fulfill the core aesthetic requirement are ARTS 1301, Art Appreciation; ARTS 1303, Art History I; and ARTS 1304, Art History II. The art studio courses require skills development that includes outside work. The time required varies with each student, and students should be prepared to adjust out-of-class schedules to achieve course competencies. The art studio courses include different levels of the following: Design, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Graphics, Ceramics and Photography.

Some four-year institutions may not accept all courses that are listed under “area of concentration” as part of a baccalaureate major. Students must check with their advisors in the Fine & Performing Arts/Speech Communication Department and/or the four-year institution to which they plan to transfer for information on the 2+2 agreement.

Students who intend to major in Art and have not yet decided on the senior college that they will attend should meet with their PAC advisor and follow Palo Alto College’s generic degree plan for Arts.
