Associate in Science, Liberal Studies

Bedford Campus - Day and Evening

Program Description:

The Studio Art Associate in Science, Liberal Studies program is designed to resemble the core curriculum of most art colleges and enable students to transfer directly into their major field of study. Students learn to utilize the fundamentals shared by all art forms to achieve creative solutions, and practice effective oral, written and visual communication. They also build a well-rounded portfolio, which is required for transfer.

Career and Transfer Outlook:

Most students in the Studio Art program continue their studies toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Students should check the requirements of the transfer institution and meet with career and academic/transfer counselors at MCC for specific program planning. Graduates have pursued careers in illustration, graphic design, industrial design, painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, interior design and art education.

Helpful Hints:

Art assignments will require extensive out-of-class time in MCC’s art studios and labs.

It is strongly recommended that students begin their educational career at Middlesex with foundation-level courses in English and math, along with one or two program requirements.

  • Use the creative process to plan and execute their artwork in a variety of media;
