What is a Diploma in Art Studies? This type of diploma is ideal for students who want to take their knowledge of fine art, whether it is photography, music, the French language, interior design, or illustration, to the next level.

This diploma allows students to focus on a specific area of art that they are most interested in and prepares them to later acquire a bachelor’s or master’s degree in this precise field. For example, if a student were to pursue a diploma in illustration, they would take courses such as basic illustration techniques, drawing, advanced art, and others.

By acquiring this diploma, students will have the necessary skills and knowledge they need to either thrive in their artistic career field of choice or go on to gain more education to refine their skills even further. Since these diplomas are targeted to a specific aspect of the arts, students will not only become experts in their craft, but also have an advantage in the same field in comparison to others who have not specialized by receiving a diploma.

How much it costs to obtain a Diploma in Art Studies is dependent on where the courses are taken and the institution’s specific rates. Additionally, how long it takes to complete the program also plays a large role in how much it costs. For instance, a student will likely pay more to complete a diploma program that lasts for two years in comparison to a student who enrolls in a one-year program.

With this type of diploma, students can expect to acquire a profession in the field of art they studied. For example, if the student studied photography, they would have the skills they need to pursue a career as a professional photographer.

Interested students should take several steps now to further enhance their education and artistic skills. For more information, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The Higher Diploma in Art & Ecology is the equivalent to the Post Baccalaureate in North America, and is known informally as the ‘Post Bac’. This one-year course is designed for students who wish to develop their artistic practice through engaging with ecology, earth systems and environmental change. Through fine art practice, students investigate how social and earth ecologies coexist within the unique context of the Burren. Students are assisted in finding their voices as ecologically oriented artists and are prepared for application to, and potential enrolment in, an MA / MFA programme. The Post Bac in Art & Ecology is also applicable for students who have a degree in a subject other than fine art and who wish to transfer onto a fine art educational track by progressing to an MA/MFA programme. -
