Do you feel the need to create, to express yourself and your ideas through art? Earning an Associate of Arts in Art at EA is a smart way to launch your education and career path in an artistic field. Artists often develop their skills through a bachelor’s degree program or other specialized training. Our associate degree meets the requirements for the first two years of a four-year bachelor’s program in art at a professional art school or at a college of fine arts at one of Arizona’s public universities. You can transfer with junior status after building a strong academic foundation in a variety of mediums including design, drawing, painting, and sculpture — all taught in small classes and offered at an extremely affordable tuition cost. You are encouraged to work closely with an academic adviser and consult the official transfer guide to ensure you are on the correct course to maximize course transferability.
