An arts education is a liberating and transformative experience. Indeed,
students are changed by their education in arts, more aware of who they are, how
they are bound to a diversity of people around the world, and how this
incredibly complex world actually works. They learn to cross inter-personal and
cultural boundaries by cultivating their ability to see the world from someone
else’s point of view, be they a character in an eighteenth-century novel, a
nineteenth-century Chinese peasant, an aboriginal artist, or the manager of a
high-tech firm in Japan. Such an ability prepares them for employment,
entrepreneurship, further education, and the social and ethical obligations of
citizenship — both locally and globally. In short, it prepares them for life.
An Associate of Arts degree is a two-year credential that also serves as an intermediate qualification for students wishing to transfer a degree program at degree programs or another educational institution. There are four associate degree options: International and Development Studies, Media and Communication Studies, Theatre, and the general option.
