Art (Studio) - A.A. (TTP)


For more information on this program, contact the Humanities division at 615-230-3200 or at humanities@volstate.edu.

The Art emphasis is a two-year program for students planning to complete a bachelor’s degree at a four-year school.  The standard pre-professional degree for artists and designers is a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.). Individuals majoring in art have a variety of career opportunities including, but not limited to: studio artist, graphic designer, photographer, web and/or multimedia designer, product and/or package designer, interior designer, craft artist including jewelry or textile designer, museum curator, art historian, and educator.

Additionally, an art curriculum provides intensive education in problem-solving strategies, a skill both useful and desired in many occupations. For those students primarily interested in developing their problem-solving skills, Two-Dimensional Design, Three-Dimensional Design, and Graphic Design are recommended.

Transfer Options
The Tennessee Transfer Pathway (TTP) degree is designed to create a smooth transition to all public universities offering a Baccalaureate degree in this major by guaranteeing the transferability of all courses. For transfer to other four-year institutions, contact an advisor at the senior institution.  Note:  There are to be no course substitutions in this program

All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the Educational Testing Service Proficiency Profile (ETSP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at http://www.volstate.edu/Testing/Services.php.
