The Associate in Fine Arts degree (A.F.A.) is designed to prepare students to transfer as juniors into a bachelor’s degree program (B.F.A.) in Studio Art. Students are encouraged to complete their core courses in Art before enrolling in media specific studio courses. A portfolio is usually required for transfer to a four-year institution. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with their instructors, with the PSC Counseling and Academic Advising Center, and with the university where they expect to transfer for information regarding the most appropriate courses to take while at PSC.
