Program Curriculum

This is a recommended list of courses for students who plan to major in ART at a university. Students who complete this program will be eligible to apply for the Associate of Arts degree at WCJC. Courses that must be taken in order to satisfy AA degree requirements are listed with the corresponding WCJC Core 030 Curriculum Component. Courses that are listed as "Recommended" are electives that will contribute to AA degree requirements. Different electives may be chosen, but must be selected from academic rather than technical courses, as indicated in the course descriptions.

WCJC’s AA degree requires 60 hours, and students should be aware they may not be able to transfer more than 60-66 hours.
