Outcomes Related to Transfer
Transfer of visual art classes is a central focus of CCRI's AFA course work. The Associate of Fine Arts in visual art is a solid foundation program equal in content and quality to major art programs throughout the country, which enables smooth transfer in studio art and art history. Transfer often depends upon successful portfolio development and presentation. Students are advised to consult with faculty for optimal transfer success.
