Certificate in Fine Arts (CFA)

This certificate program provides an opportunity for the student to concentrate his or her program of study in fine arts. The program is suitable for those who wish to pursue art as a profession. The program is not designed with an emphasis on transfer, although all courses in the program are transferable.

A candidate for a Certificate in Fine Arts (CFA) must complete a minimum of 96 quarter credits with a grade point average of 2.0 or better. The program can be completed in two years. However, a longer time span may be necessary for maturation of skills. Students must submit a portfolio and participate in an exhibition during their final quarter. Art faculty will work closely with students to build a strong portfolio. A review committee of faculty will evaluate the artwork before final approval to recommend awarding a Certificate in Fine Arts.
