Individuals looking to broaden their career options after secondary school can obtain a diploma in a particular field. These programs typically do not require general education classes, so they take a shorter time to complete.

Programs in the Arts range from philosophy to English, vocal performance to instrumental performance, and even culinary arts or fashion. The thread that connects arts programs is that they all have to do with creative learning.
