Associate of Fine Arts

This degree is designed to prepare students to work as professional artists, or to transfer to NMSU – Las Cruces to complete a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor in Fine Arts (BFA) degree in their chosen career field in Art, including drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, or sculpture. Each area of concentration provides specialized training in studio and conceptual processes and allows students to complete all the required course work for the first two years of study.

The Fine Arts Associate Degree provides a tangible level of expertise and academic recognition for that achievement. Although many of our students do not intend to move on to the BA or BFA degree, they can complete an associate’s degree in their chosen art field. NMSU-A has developed a top notch art department with state of the art technology and instructors with exceptional credentials and experience.
