Associate of Fine Arts in Performing Arts Program Description
The performing arts are important as a component of learning and experience for all students. The performing arts provide a unique way to communicate meaning, hone talent, and provide preparation for professional practice.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br> <br>The proposed Associate of Fine Arts supports the College’s mission by providing students with performing experience, practical career skills, and applied technique as a foundation for advancement. Solid training in classical and/or contemporary techniques is given with opportunities for participation in performances every semester. This program helps students to prepare for employment, career advancement, or transfer to a four-year institution with majors in the performing arts culminating in the Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Arts, or Bachelor of Music.&nbsp; The A.F.A. is the recognized credential for transfer to a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) program at a four-year college.&nbsp; The Associate of Fine Arts in Performing Arts provides foundation coursework that parallels the first two years of a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (B.F.A).&nbsp; <br> <br>
