Often, those with high school diplomas decide to return to school in pursuit of an associate degree, which is an academic achievement awarded to those who effectively complete about two years of comprehensive study on a given topic or industry.

Just what is an Associate Degree in Arts Studies? Intended for those looking to launch careers within the fine arts, these programs offer a broad liberal arts education with an emphasis on music, theatre, film, dance and art. While these programs vary in terms of content, students can typically expect close review of areas like art history, music history, music appreciation and literature. Additional time is often spent on the humanities, philosophy, ethnic literature, world history, political science and cultural anthropology. 

Many who earn associate degrees find that they are qualified for more lucrative positions after earning the degree than they were prior. They also frequently report higher annual earnings than those in similar fields without degrees.

Arts studies degree programs vary substantially in terms of enrollment costs. Students considering applying to a particular arts studies program should connect directly with the admissions office of the school offering it for accurate tuition rates and course schedules.

Many graduates of arts studies degree programs go on to establish rewarding careers within the fine arts. Some go on to work as assistants for artists or photographers, while others work as prepress technicians or specialists. Some graduates become art teachers and teach at the elementary level or privately. Many people decide to return to school in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in a similar area as a way of broadening art-related career prospects even further.
