Why Study Art?
The study of art prepares students for a wide variety of careers that produce the images and objects that infuse our daily lives. Rockland Community College Art students complete foundation courses in design, drawing, computer graphics, photography and art history. A degree in Fine Arts, Photography, or Graphic Design and Computer Graphics prepares students to pursue careers in graphic design, illustration, photography, fine arts and more. Many graduates have transferred to prestigious professional art schools to specialize in one or more of these fields. Others have found employment in advertising agencies, publishing houses, design and photography studios. Some students elect to finish a four-year degree in art education.
An Associate of Science (AS) degree provides a solid foundation for those who plan to transfer to a four-year college. Those who prefer to enter the workforce immediately should consider earning an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree or certificate.
