Career Information

The AA-T in Art History can provide students with the foundational knowledge necessary for transfer to a 4-year Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree program. Career opportunities for students who have earned BA degrees in Art History include but are not limited to: registrars, preparators, and curatorial staff in art museums and galleries; art critics in mass media publications, such as newspapers and magazines. An advanced degree allows an art historian a wider range of possible career applications, including museums directorships, curators, instructors, preservationists, researchers, and auction house personnel. Some careers may require additional training. NOTE TO TRANSFER STUDENTS: The Associate in Arts in Art History for Transfer program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a campus of the California State University (CSU). Other than the required core, the courses you choose to complete this degree will depend to some extent on the selected CSU for transfer. In addition, some CSU-GE Breadth or IGETC requirements can also be completed using courses required for this associate degree for transfer major (known as “double-counting”). Meeting with a counselor to determine the most appropriate course choices will facilitate efficient completion of your transfer requirements. For students wishing to transfer to other universities (UC System, private, or out-of-state), the Associate Degree for Transfer may not provide adequate preparation for upper-division transfer admissions; it is critical that you meet with a CRC counselor to select and plan the courses for the major, as programs vary widely in terms of the required preparation.

A.A.-T. in Studio Arts

Completion of this degree provides a foundation in studio art methods. Program offerings include coursework in art history, 2-D, and 3-D studio practices. The Associate in Arts in Studio Art for Transfer Degree (AA-T) is designed to provide a seamless transfer pathway for students interested in pursuing at least one art studio degree option in the California State University (CSU) system. The degree is comprised of lower division coursework typically required by CSU institutions. Students must complete a total of 60 transferable semester units with a minimum 2.0 GPA, to include either the California State University General Education Breadth pattern or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum; students must also earn a grade of C or better in all the courses for the major as described in the Required Program. Upon successful completion of the degree requirements, students will be guaranteed admission to the CSU system with junior status and will not have to repeat lower division coursework. Students are encouraged to meet with a counselor to develop their educational plans as degree options and general education requirements vary for each university.
