Associate degree programs are meant to educate students on a specific field of study in preparation for further education or entry-level work. Most associate degree programs can be completed in two years or fewer.

There are a number of paths students can take when it comes to the arts. What is an associate degree in fine arts? Fine arts covers a wide range of focus areas, including photography, music, graphic design, and theater, so the study topics vary depending upon a student’s focus. Some potential courses include web design, music theory, theater, and animation. General education requirements may be required to complete a degree as well.

An associate degree in fine arts prepares students for careers in the arts, broadening their horizons in terms of the field. This degree often also makes for an easy transition into a bachelor’s degree program, something a lot of students choose to do.

The cost of an associate’s degree depends on the school, so students will want to explore their options and decide which program is right for them. A typical two-year program can offer financial aid to students who qualify. Contact an advisor to figure out what it will cost for you to attend.

Depending upon a student’s specific field of study within a fine arts program, career options can include becoming a photographer, web designer, musician, printmaker or animator and working at such places as newspapers, websites, advertising agencies or music producers. Continuing education options include bachelor’s and master’s degree programs that focus on a particular discipline in fine arts.

Your associate’s degree can be a great way to kick start a career. Because fine arts covers such a broad range of topics, it’s important to understand the ins and outs of each specific program. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
