Associate in Fine Arts AFA Degree

Schoolcraft’s Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degree is designed for students who intend to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in the fine arts field. It allows the student to establish a strong academic foundation in arts and complete courses to fulfill general education requirements—all before moving on to a Bachelor’s degree program at another college or university.  Courses in this particular sequence of the AFA are focused on music, but students interested in other areas of fine arts could substitute courses in art, literature, or humanities.  See the degree requirements or talk to an academic advisor for details.

All courses must be completed with a minimum overall grade point average of 2.0 or better.

Not all courses are offered each semester.  Students should work with an academic advisor to develop a schedule that will work for them. Students planning to transfer should check the transfer institution’s requirements/guides or discuss their options with an academic advisor. Number of credits may vary depending on the course selection.
