The Fine Arts Degree provides a transfer program in the fine arts for students who wish to continue in this field after graduation. In addition to the primary transfer function, this program also provides cultural enrichment for students wishing only the associate’s degree.

Students who plan to transfer to a four-year college are advised to check with the intended college concerning the number of transferable credits. Completion of the requirements of an additional program “track” does not constitute a different degree.

You love art and people have always said you’re good at it. You have a keen eye for design and enjoy working on creative projects. You like to work hard on the details that make things look good – from your art to your surroundings. You work hard – and it pays off.

Becoming Connecticut State Community College 

A merger of Connecticut’s 12 community colleges is underway. As a part of this merger, modifications will be made to academic programs. Students who do not complete their programs by the end of the Spring 2023 term will be matched with the Connecticut State Community College (CT State) program that most closely aligns with ​the student’s Spring 2023 program and is offered at the current  Middlesex Community College location. The College is committed to students completing their education with a minimum of disruption. Further details can be found and will be updated on the Frequently Asked Questions page: www.ct.edu/ctstate/academics.
