University Transfer Degree

University Transfer Degree Information:
This degree program is designed for students planning to transfer to baccalaureate colleges and universities. Transfer credit varies among colleges. Students should consult both the catalog of the specific college/university to which they plan to transfer and the signed transfer agreement or the current transfer planning guide posted at to select courses that will meet requirements for both the associate and baccalaureate degree programs.

Program Description:
Throughout history, no culture has ever persisted without some form of art. The fine arts - painting, sculpture and architecture - express our culture. The applied arts touch an infinite list of things in our environment from packaging, magazines, web design, and television to interior design. A liberal education that does not include familiarity with the history and language of art is lacking. The primary purpose of TCC’s art program is to develop a basic historical, conceptual, and technical education in art. Believing that the artist’s success is dependent on both creative vision and technical expertise, the program encourages excellence, critical inquiry, and experimentation.

Degree Awarded: Associate in Arts
