PSC offers the foundation courses in art appreciation, art history, and studio art required in the first two years of the Art major. Through painting, drawing, graphic design, and photography, students may pursue a variety of interests. Students planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree should be aware that transfer admission to art-related programs is competitive, and a portfolio is generally required for admission to the major as well as for registration in advanced art courses and for scholarship consideration. Each university has its own transfer policies; we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information in regard to every individual school.
