Credit Hours Required: 61
The Associate of Arts in Fine Arts degree requires completion of 61 credit hours. This degree is designed to enable a student to transfer to a baccalaureate-granting institution. Students following this degree program will complete university-parallel requirements in general education that will fulfill all lower division general education requirements at the Arizona universities. The AAFA degree will also allow students to declare a concentration in Art, Music or Performing Arts. This degree outline provides the list of fine art concentration core requirements and elective options.
Students preparing to transfer to an upper-division baccalaureate degree program should contact an advisor in the major field of study at the transfer institution in addition to meeting regularly with a faculty advisor and/or an academic advisor at Yavapai College.
Regular advisement is important to build an educational plan and ensure transferability of general education, elective, and major courses.
