The Associate in Arts in Studio Arts for Transfer degree is designed for students who plan to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Art at a California State University institution. The core courses required in this program provide students with a foundation of knowledge to pursue advance study in a variety of programs including General Studio, Ceramics, Crafts, Drawing, Painting, Entertainment Art, Animation, Graphic Design, Illustration, Sculpture, Printmaking and other similar majors of concentration. The Associate in Arts in Studio Arts for Transfer will prepare the student for transfer to a four year University and guarantee admission to the CSU system, though it will not guarantee admission to a particular campus. While an associate degree may support attempts to gain entry-level employment or promotion, a baccalaureate or higher degree is recommended for those considering professional careers, which can be achieved through transfer.
