The mission of the Fine Arts Department is to develop the artistic skills of students and to increase their cultural knowledge. This mission is accomplished through the study of art, drama, and music. This increase in skill and knowledge gives students the ability to impact the cultural world with their own creative endeavors and a greater understanding of the cultural world around them.
The Fine Arts Department offers courses in Art, Drama, and Music. Many of these courses can be used to fulfill requirements for the various degrees offered by CFCC. One primary goal of the department is to prepare students with the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully transfer to a four-year college or university. See the CFCC Catalog for more details.
Associate in Fine Arts Degree
The Fine Arts Department also offers Associate in Fine Arts degrees (AFA degrees) for those planning to pursue major study in the arts at the four-year level. The Associate in Fine Arts degree is offered with pre-majors in Visual Arts, Music, and Theatre. See Associate in Fine Arts, Music, Associate in Fine Arts, Theatre, and Associate in Fine Arts, Visual Arts.
