AA in Art Education Transfer Plan

This plan is for students who intend to transfer to a four-year school to complete a degree in art education. Most art education programs require students to take classes in a diverse range of mediums. Students on this path should consider this when selecting art studio electives. These classes will dictate the kind of artwork that makes up the student’s transfer portfolio. Related careers include but are not limited to: teaching primary and secondary education, K–12 administration, art therapy, museum education, and community arts programming.
