Top Certificate Programs in Applied Arts

A certificate provides additional knowledge in a particular area. Students may choose to earn a certificate to help them develop their career or to help bridge an academic gap. Certificates are available in a number of different subjects.

What is a certificate in applied arts? The applied arts consist of skills such as architecture, sculpture, and painting that are applied in an industry. In this program, students develop their knowledge and techniques in a specific applied art or in a general capacity. Examples of classes include practical drawing, photography, digital arts, craft work, art history and theory, and 3D workshop. Some programs also offer business and marketing courses so students learn how to apply their skills in real life.

Earning a certificate is beneficial for students because it provides knowledge in an area in a shorter time than a traditional degree program. This designation may also help current professionals earn a promotion or get a raise.

Because the costs associated with earning a certificate can vary, students should call a number of schools and ask about tuition and other fees. In order to help budget finances, students should also find out if the college offers help in the form of financial aid.

Depending on their focus of study, those who hold a certificate in applied arts may find a career in the area of performing arts, music, or visual arts and design. Examples of job titles include print illustrator, artist, designer, jewelry maker, performing artist, painter, website designer, and musician. Some graduates may also choose to teach their trade, either in an educational institution, art gallery, or private practice.
